Woodland Hills Neighbors File Suit in County Court

A group of neighbors who live near the former Woodland Hills Country Club in Lower Saucon Township are suing to block the use of the clubhouse as a commercial banquet facility.

A group of Lower Saucon Township residents who live near the former Woodland Hills Country Club filed suit against property owner Alex Patullo in Northampton County Court last week, WFMZ reported April 27.

The neighbors oppose and are fighting to have overturned, according to the story.

The residents are arguing in their suit that the variance should not have been approved, and are claiming that the establishment Patullo plans to operate should be classified as a tavern rather than a club, it stated.

Woodland Hills Country Club closed in 2010, and the neighbors' group and Patullo have battled back and forth in court about Patullo's plan over the past two years.

I don't have good things to say abaout the township zoning board, due to the fact that they tend to rubber stamp approavlas for eveything and and have no real feel for what is going on in the township. But this is jst another case of NIMBY. What is real sad are the development plans for the golf course. There has to be a balance in this community of homes and businesses. Very few peole get that.

Actually I have to agree with Jay, Steve. I feel all I ever read in the comments section is Ms. Brown's negative feed back. Nothing constructive. If everything she has to say is as simple as she puts it, why is she not part of the solution on the boards? I can agree that Jay's contribution was flat out... stupid. If I didn't know any better I'd say she posts these types of comments for the attention rather than solutions. I could do the same by picking a side and generalizing. Please look at the rest of her previous comments on other blogs.
