Township of Ephrata. supervisors reverse earlier decision and approve stop sign on Hammon Avenue | Community News


When: Ephrata Township Supervisory Board meeting, November 1.

What happened: Supervisors reversed an earlier decision and agreed to put up a no parking sign at Jill Millhouse’s Hammon Avenue residence at the intersection with Meadow Valley Road.

Details: Ephrata Township officials denied his request at their Oct. 18 meeting, but reconsidered after Millhouse said in a letter that parked cars “significantly” limited his ability to see when trying to pull out of his driveway. After consulting with the township’s traffic engineer, township manager Steve Sawyer agreed that parked cars may impede line-of-sight through the intersection.

Quoteable: “There are always plenty of open parking spaces on Hammon Avenue; none of us see the need for public parking in this particular area near the busy intersection,” Millhouse wrote.

Farm market: Sawyer also said he attended the grand opening of the Dutch-Way Farmer’s Market on Oct. 26, calling it an “impressive redevelopment” and a “benefit to the Ephrata community.” Township engineer Jim Caldwell of Rettew Associates called the new grocery store a “successful achievement.” The Dutch-Way Farmer’s Market and Good’s store occupy the former Kmart building on South State Street.

And after: Council will meet at 7 a.m. Nov. 15 at the Township of Ephrata Municipal Building at 265 Akron Road, Ephrata.
