1/6/2020 6:45 PM

The work session of the Buckingham Township Board of Supervisors was held January 6, 2020 in the Township Building, 4613 Hughesian Drive, Buckingham, Pennsylvania.          

 

Present:          

Jon Forest, Chairman

Maggie Rash, Vice-Chairman

Paul Calderaio, Member

Dana S. Cozza, Township Manager

Daniel Gray, Township Engineer

Luke Rosanova, Bucks County Planning Commission

Craig A. Smith, Esquire, Township Solicitor 

Not Present:

The work session commenced at 6:45 p.m.

 

“Trycieki Tract”, Township File SA 2016-02

 

Mr. Tom Trycieki and Mr. Greg Glitzer, Gilmore & Associates, Inc., were present to discuss Mr. Trycieki’s request for the Board to revisit the approved plan “Trycieki Tract”, specifically the designed area of the cul de sac bulb extension from Bittersweet Lane.

 

Mr. Gray explained that Bittersweet Lane currently ends in a flare, which was designed with the intention to enter the Trycieki property when it became developed. The plan was originally designed as 2-lots, then reduced to 1 lot, and the current need is only to provide an area in which trash trucks, school bus, delivery trucks can turn around.

 

Mr. Glitzer proposed to leave the flare and bring the driveway into it, thereby reducing the area that would be needed for a cul de sac. He explained this would provide Mr. Trycieki with more farming area and also reduce the inconvenience to the neighbors because they will not need to disturb the existing roadway in front of their homes.

 

The Board unanimously agreed to this proposal. Mr. Glitzer said he will work with the township engineer to revise the plan accordingly.

 

7:00 p.m. The Board retired into Executive Session to discuss acquisition of and offers for the purchase of conservation easements on certain tracts of land, potential litigation to recover professional fees and police personnel matters.

 

7:35 p.m. The Work Session resumed.

 


Buckingham Township Road Map

 

Mrs. Cozza said township staff is working on the updated Buckingham Township road map, and asked the Board if they preferred a large or smaller version of the map. Mrs. Cozza showed them samples, and at first the Board preferred the smaller version as it was a handy size, however Mr. Gray recommended the larger size as the road names are easier to read. Mrs. Rash agreed.

 

Central Bucks Emergency Medical Services – Working Subcommittee

 

Mrs. Cozza explained the township received a letter from Mr. Pressler of Central Bucks Emergency Medical Services, requesting the Chairperson to appoint a person and an alternate to participate with a working subcommittee to discuss options for a better functioning financial model for EMS operations. The Board agreed that Mrs. Rash would participate as the “person” and Mr. Forest as the alternate.

  

 

7:45 p.m. The Work Session adjourned.

  

Approved by the Board of Supervisors on the 22nd day of January, 2020.
