Monday night the Board of Commissioners approved a plan to rejuvenate MacArthur Road and make the area around Rt.22 more palatable to the eye. Great idea, that area has needed an enema and a makeover for a long time. Linda Snyder isn’t big on the plan. She was vocal in her opposition to the plan. I agree that the specific details are scant. I’m not one to frequently support anything she backs, but in this case she is right.
Mayor “Hozbollah” Hozza is for the plan. He believes Whitehall must be made into a “vibrant community” once again. He’s right. The plan he wants seems like window dressing though. New street signs, walkways, trails…eye candy more or less. And that doesn’t take into account the finances of the deal. There was little mention of what the final costs would be or where the money would come from. Like lemmings, the Commission went along with the plan, except for Snyder who wants to know more.
Good for her! It’s about time someone takes a stand over at the Township Building
