Sprawl developers need variances from South Whitehall zoners for the corner of Hamilton and Cedar Crest Blvd. South Whitehall zoners should make those variances conditional on developers agreeing to pay for the preservation of the King George Inn, instead of tearing it down. Ron Beitler sends over an example of an historic structure that was preserved in a new commercial development very similar to this.
South Whitehall zoners have all the power here. They’d be on firm legal ground simply denying the variances. Make the trade! No preservation, no parking and hotel variances.
