Trailer Park Ordinance, Qdoba on Planning Commission Agenda

The Newtown Township Planning Commission will meet Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at the township Administration Building.

The Newtown Township Planning Commission on Tuesday will consider an ordinance that would increase the amount of land needed to construct a mobile home park.

The Planning Commission will discuss an ordinance that would change the required acreage for a mobile home park from 15 to 25 acres.

But that ordinance, if approved, wouldn’t have an impact on the current proposal for a trailer park at the Newtown Swim Club.  

The motivation behind the proposed ordinance “is to not have to face the threat of a mobile home park again,” Board of Supervisors Chairman Mike Gallagher said.

The commission will also consider two conditional use applications; one for Qdoba and another for Smoothie King.

Qdoba, a Mexican eatery, has applied for conditional use approval with Newtown Township to open a restaurant in the Village at Newtown West. 

Smoothie King, a chain that serves an array of smoothies and health food products, has submitted a conditional use application to open a location in the Village at Newtown South.

The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. at the township Administration Building.

Qdoba offers bland burritos......... Chipotle is much better.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS EDABLE HIGH END MEXICAN FOOD. WHY DO WE GET A CONSTANT SUPPLY OF UP SCALE GARBAGE WHEN MOST HAVEN'T EXPERIENCED HAUTE CUISINE.

I've been to both Chipolte and Qdoba many times, and to have Ed B throwing out these asinine statements that are completely untrue is a shame. In actuality the complete opposite is true because Qdoba has many more salsa's and much more flavor. Chipolte is still good but if either chains burritos are bland it's Chipolte 100%

I don't understand --- the community is vehemitly oppossed to a trailer park and changing the zoning to not have to visit this again says txthe developer go ahead and build it but you can't build any more in the future. You have a mandate from everjy community in the area representing about 15k residents , why are you ignoring them?
