SANATOGA PA – A grading permit that will let work get under way to build a new gymnasium expansion at Berean Bible Church, 2675 E. High St., Sanatoga PA, was approved Monday (May 21, 2012) by the Lower Pottsgrove Planning Commission during an exceedingly brief meeting.
The session, according to a clock watched by township Assistant Manager Alyson Elliott, took all of two minutes; “maybe a new record!,” joked Chairman Frank Cebular. The permit was the only item on the planners’ agenda. Commissioners Ronald Dinnocenti, William Wolfgang and Anthony Cherico also were in attendance; Brian Brentzel was absent and did not participate in the board’s unanimous vote.
The church must yet receive approval from the township Board of Commissioners, but its members previously indicated they are interested in expediting the construction. Permit approval may be part of their Thursday (May 24) meeting agenda.
Planners learned that the Montgomery County Conservation District has also given is approval to Berean’s plans, which means there likely will be little need for further changes. Elliott said Bursich Associates Inc., the township engineering firm, also has given the church plans a final review and seems satisfied.
