Workshop Digest – May 13, 2019

Hi, Neighbors. We had an Aleppo Workshop Meeting on Monday night and I wanted to tell you what happened. If you want to watch the meeting from the beginning, click here. Otherwise, feel free to click the links below to jump to the portions of the meeting that are of interest to you.

Before I get started, you’ll see that quite a few motions were set up for a vote at our next meeting (which will take place on Monday, May 20). We want to hear from you if you have a position on these issues. We purposefully defer voting on these motions so that we can give residents a say in what is being done. Please do not ever feel as if you do not have the opportunity to voice your position. If you come to a meeting, we will let you speak. If you can’t make the meeting, we are happy to accept any emailed comments and we will read them to the board. We value resident input and will make every effort possible to give you the chance to tell us how you feel.

OK. With that thought out of the way, here’s what happened:

  • A resident reported about the results of a survey concerning the potential Park on Weber Road. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #WeberRoad, #Park
  • We heard an application by Verizon to build covered parking over some of the spaces in its lot on North Drive. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting and click here to view the documents related to this application.) We will be voting on this motion on Monday, so please let us know if you have any feelings to share. #PlanningCommission, #Verizon
  • We heard of preliminary plans for Amazon to build a new parking lot on North Drive. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting and click here to see a map of the proposed location of this new parking lot.) #Amazon, #NorthDrive
  • We made a motion to authorize the township engineer to assess and prepare preliminary plans for an emergency second exit from the Sewickley Heights Manor connecting Little Hollow and Veshio Drive. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) We will be voting on this motion on Monday, so please let us know if you have any feelings to share. #SewickleyHeightsManor
  • We made a motion to donate $250 to the Sewickley Memorial Day Celebration. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) We will be voting on this motion on Monday, so please let us know if you have any feelings to share. #SewickleyMemorialDayCelebration
  • We made a motion to draft a statement in support of HR 763, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act of 2019. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting and click here to see another discussion on this topic that took place at a different time in the meeting.) We will be voting on this motion on Monday, so please let us know if you have any feelings to share. #CitizenParticipation
  • I announced my intent to resign from the Aleppo Board of Commissioners because our family is selling our house and I will no longer be a resident of the township. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #BoardOfCommissioners, MattDoebler
  • We began a conversation about regulating parking on the median strips in the Sewickley Heights Manor. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #SewickleyHeightsManor, #Parking

Our next Legislative meeting will be on Monday, May 20, 2019 at 7:00 PM at the Township Building. If any of these issues are important to you, please feel free to join us and voice your opinion. If you cannot attend the meeting in person, please feel free to share your thoughts with me by email and I will be sure to convey your feelings to the other commissioners.

As always, thanks for making Aleppo a great place to live.

Best wishes,

Matthew Doebler
