Academy Sign Subject Of Zoning Hearing

SANATOGA PA – A request by Coventry Christian Academy, 699 N. Pleasant View Rd., to replace its existing message board sign with a new lighted, electronic version, will be the subject of a Lower Pottsgrove (PA) Township Zoning Hearing Board hearing next Tuesday (July 21, 2009) at 6 p.m. in the township municipal building, 2199 Buchert Rd.

The public may attend the meeting, and will be allowed to comment on the proposal.

The academy, located in the former Lower Pottsgrove Elementary School, has told the zoning board the sign will be about 8 feet by 4-1/4 feet in size. However, a legal notice published in Tuesday’s (July 14, 2009) edition of The (Pottstown PA) Mercury newspaper erroneously states the sign will measure 51 feet by 96 feet.

Two variances are being sought from the zoning board: the first, to allow an electronic message center sign, which is otherwise prohibited under township ordinances; and the second, to permit a sign that exceeds 20 square feet in size. Coventry’s proposal would equal 34 square feet.

The school is within an R2 residential district.
