Kiski Township proposes expanded business district for Route 56 corridor
Kiski Township’s planning commission is “modernizing” its zoning ordinance, proposing streamlined districts and an expanded commercial district along the Route 56 corridor.
The planning commission proposed “minor changes and tweaks” including expanding the existing industrial zone in the township’s Maysville section, according to Chuck Rodnicki, a member and secretary of the planning commission.
The new ordinance would reduce the township from six to five zones, eliminating “suburban residential,” which would be absorbed into “agricultural residential” or “residential.”
The zoning ordinances haven’t been updated since the 1990s.
The updates are under review by the township manager and solicitor. The planning commission plans to present the new ordinance to the public for comment in the first quarter of 2019, according to Rodnicki.
