The Applicant proposes the lot consolidation and land development located within the LC&I Limited Commercial and Industrial Zoning District. The subject property is approximately 1.8 acres and currently contains a 29,845 square foot industrial building and small parking lot with two access points from S. Montgomery Avenue.
The Applicant proposes two phases for the above referenced project. Only Phase 1 has been submitted at this time. Phase 1 proposes to consolidate two (2) parcels with the subject property to create a new lot size of approximately 3.3 acres. Upon consolidation of the properties, the Applicant proposes to demolish the existing buildings on Lots 2 and 3, to construct a 3,250 square foot building addition to the existing industrial building. Additional improvements include the relocation of the southern access drive, tree removal, site grading and a proposed underground stormwater facility to control the runoff from both Phases.
Phase 2 proposes to consolidate the last parcel in this location, TMP 63-00-03628-00-8, to the new property and demolish the existing dwelling.

Schedule of Meetings
Subdivision and Land Development in West Norriton is regulated through the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code and West Norriton’s Subdivision & Land Development Ordinance (SALDO). These two documents dictate how the process of subdividing or developing property within township is handled. A qualifying property owner can submit an application along with engineered plans to the Township for official review. The Planning Commission is the first body to review the submitted plans. They formally accept plans at their meetings and then the township consultants conduct a technical review of the submission. The consultants will issue a formal review letter that will be discussed during future meetings. The plan sets will continue to be revised until such time they are found acceptable. The Planning Commission is a recommending body and can recommend approval/denial of a plan to the Board of Commissioners(BOC). The BOC then conduct their own review of the plans based on the recommendation of the PC and the formal reviews by the township consultants. When found acceptable, the BOC will authorize approval/denial of the plans.
