Spring prompts interest in development

NEW CASTLE — The Neshannock Township supervisors approved a few preliminary plans for development this week.

Requests included sewer line extensions on Trail One and Club Drive for houses, a subdivision for Terrace North off Nesbit Road to create more parking at the former Fisher’s Big Wheel office building; and the R&K Partners subdivision for a side yard addition off East Maitland Lane.

The requests were approved by a 2-0 vote. Supervisor Ed Stevens was absent from the meeting.

Township solicitor Lou Perrotta was authorized to meet with developers of a housing subdivision off Mercer Road. Perrotta said another potential developer has expressed interest in taking over the project.

The supervisors also:

•Hired summer workers Jonathan Wherry and Doug Flamino for the sewer department; Nick Graziani, Joseph Cioffi, James Jolley, Rocco Fazio and Jeff Sanfilippo for the road department; Nick Nawrocki, Steven Flamino, Peter Montini and Kenny Shoup for park maintenance and Samantha DeMatteo and Marianne Piatek for the park office. The workers will be paid between $7.25 and $7.45 per hour, according to years of service.
