Kyma deck gets the OK

By on May 11, 2011

East Cocalico Supervisors approved the seasonal, 1,497-square-foot elevated deck planned for the Kurtz Road side of Kyma Seafood restaurant. The action on May 4 followed the solicitor s opinion that the addition is not a land development. The proposed addition adds 74 seats, restrooms and a roof over the bar area. We’ll start the permitting process tomorrow, township zoning officer Tony Luongo said. They are eager to get started.

A letter outlining conditions relating to the permits will also go to Kyma. In other business, a time extension was granted until July 22 for Wabash Landing s preliminary subdivision/annexation plan. The subdivision plan for Brunner s Grove Crossing was granted an extension until August 26, 2011. Supervisors authorized East Cocalico Manager, Mark Hiester, to sign the PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permit (HOP) for the Raymond Bradley Plan if Penn DOT requires the signature. Police Chief George Beever told supervisors that police have their eyes on trail bikes" following complaints that several bikes are riding on property that they shouldn’t be on. Supervisors approved appointing six new people as fire police. One of the six, Jeff Grumbling, has earned his certificate, following completion of the responder level fire police training. Other new fire police, who have one year to earn their certificates, include: Daniel Gonzalez, Elvin Hoover, Wesley Hoover, Jason Oberholtzer and Chad Walter. "Pepperidge Farm is looking for more (parking) space and inquired about 1975 Reading Road. Although in the past, the answer (to these types of requests) has been no, I wanted to determine if there has been a change, supervisor Noelle Fortna reported. Supervisors discussed what type of security, such as a fence, might be desired by Pepperidge. Currently there is no fence around parking areas. Pepperidge is a good, township business, resident Brian Wise said. They (Pepperidge) might be willing to consider some type of electronic card system.

Following additional discussion, supervisors agreed to check on these questions if Pepperidge indicates further interest in parking space at 1975 Reading Road. Wet weather continues to delay work at the pool and some road work. Citizen Bob Roggenburg, noted that the hole in the roadway at Muddy Creek Road and route 272 still needs patched.

Roggenburg also reminded supervisors of the need, about which he spoke last month, to consider a deer crossing sign for a section of Hill Road. Summer swim lessons were approved for Reamstown Pool on mornings of July 11-22. As in previous years, lessons will be run by the YMCA. Life guard training at the pool is May 7-8, Supervisor Alan Fry said. Supervisors approved Brecknock Township s request to have their new official map reviewed by East Cocalico s Planning Commission. We share some bridges, Chairman Mackley said, so it makes sense for us to do this.

Supervisors noted that as soon as all signs are in place, enforcement of no parking of large trucks along Colonel Howard Boulevard will begin. Ordinance approval for this occurred at the April supervisors meeting.
