Marcia Carnahan gets questioned by attorney Chris Papa at a meeting of the Slippery Rock Township Zoning Hearing Board Wednesday, regarding the validity of the township supervisors' past decision to change the zoning classification of a certain property.

SLIPPERY ROCK TWP — The Zoning Hearing Board continued its decision Wednesday regarding the validity of the township supervisors' past decision to change the zoning classification of a certain property owned by Heilman Pavement Specialties Inc.

The board's solicitor, Alan Shaddinger, said the board members needed time to consider all of the factors presented at the meeting, which came from Heilman's representation, Slippery Rock Township solicitor Mike Hnath and Chris Papa, who represented a group of appellants who filed a lawsuit against the township's decision earlier this year.

“We are here to determine whether or not the challenge to the township's action to adopt the ordinance to change the zoning of this particular parcel was done according to law,” Shaddinger said. “We won't be prepared to make a decision today, and probably not until we have had that opportunity to discuss those issues amongst ourselves.”
