Denied a permit !!!!!!!!!!

Yes, they were denied a permit based on current conditions. If you read the report from the township meeting( www.cumberlink.com ), there are "conditions" that caused the denial. If the farmer complies with the conditions, I would bet it will be hard to stop him from building his chicken barn. It will cost him a ton of money to make the changes but I suspect that the township couldn't stop it if the farmer is in compliance.
The people of the township can't let this one drop.

Perhaps you are experiencing a different place or it's being run by somebody else now; the guy I'm speaking of died last year.

I don't appreciate a lot of the derogatory comments I read here.
At the same time, I don't agree with this farmer wanting to build a building this close to a stream.
Quite a few years ago, if my memory is correct, there was proposed development on the Falling Spring just east of Chambersburg. I believe some people objected, and wanted the township to deny the permit. I believe the township was not willing to "legislate" an answer. Instead, the final answer was that Trout Unlimited - along with others?- bought the rights to the property and protected it.
I think there is a model here to follow. If trout fisherman was to protect these kinds of property, maybe they need to work at buying up development rights so the stream is protected. Since this is only 5 acres, maybe they could work to find the funds to buy the property from the farmer, so he could relocated elsewhere and set up an operation further away from a stream. And everyone wins.

Why do you think they want to build close to a water way???

I'm sure this will be fine with the GOP in PA. We don't have to protect trout streams from Chicken manure, it may inpact the amount of money that can be made. No Problem.. Matter of fact, you may just put it beside our town's reservoir and it would probably be OK.
Nothing like fresh water, and I do mean fresh!!!

I am amazed that this even made it to print. I love the "millions of gallons of water" and the idea of a sink hole commnents. Where do these find their facts, from Al Gore?
