East Allen officials hear Jaindl plans

Wednesday, May 16, 2018 by PAUL CMIL in Local News

Proposal changed to adjust Seemsville Road, Route 329 intersection

David Jaindl got his slot on East Allen Township’s agenda May 9 to explain his proposed development along Seemsville Road. Although there was some concern that Jaindl’s planning team moved without consulting East Allen Township, Jaindl pointed out a preliminary meeting, which East Allen officials attended, was held early on in the project.

Jaindl worked with Allen Township because the bulk of the project is within its borders. Ann- Marie Vigilante, engineer on the project, said the preliminary plan presented is markedly different from the original plan.
