Jamie Chan of Breinigsville is hopping mad about proposed development plans that would turn the cul-de-sac road she lives on into a through street.
But, a recent plea to the Upper Macungie Board Supervisors yielded Chan little satisfaction.
Chan, who has lived in at the address since 2006,according to Homesnap.com, asked supervisors to block a proposed development that would make her quiet cul-de-sac a through street.
Chan told supervisors that she purchased the home because of the cul-de-sac location and feels it is the township's job to stop it.
Supervisors and township solicitor Andrew Schantz said the board is powerless to stop any type of planned construction at this point. The board and Schantz instructed Chan to talk to the developer, who is said to be the Jaindl Land Co.
Chan also told supervisors that her house has lost value since construction. Supervisor Sam Ashmar told Chan that many people who bought homes in the township in the mid-2000s are in the same predicament.
Chan is likely to appear at an Upper Macungie Planning Commission meeting when the planned development appears on the docket.
Chan has also been a vocal opponent of increased truck traffic in the township and has spoken out against the proposed Ocean Spray distribution plan that could increase tractor-trailer traffic at certain township intersections.
Ocean Spray and traffic engineers from Keystone Consulting Engineers are currently conducting a new traffic study concerning the routes of truck traffic.
