LOWER MACUNGIE TWP., Pa. -

A long standing battle over a patch of land in Lehigh County is heading to court.

Several residents from Lower Macungie Township are filing an appeal in connection with the Spring Creek development project.

The residents want the court to overturn a plan to divide the land into sections, a plan that was approved by the township last month.

Developer David Jaindl is trying to get approval to build housing and retail units on the land.
