POTTSTOWN PA – Brookside Family Restaurant on North Charlotte Street, one of Lower Pottsgrove’s frequently visited dining spots, plans to update its existing sign with something new and flashier to catch the eyes of passers-by. Its owners will need approval of the township Zoning Hearing Board to do so, however.
The board has scheduled an open-to-the-public hearing for July 16 (2013; Tuesday) at 6 p.m. in the municipal building to discuss the sign and variances required to replace it. A notice advertising the hearing date was published Monday (July 8). Its contents appear below:
