LVPC recommends against landfill expansion zoning changes

Regional planning officials are weighing in on landfill expansion plans in Northampton County.

The Lehigh Valley Planning Commission is recommending that Lower Saucon Township not grant certain zoning changes.

Those changes would allow for an expansion of the IESI landfill.

The commission says the changes are inconsistent with the county's comprehensive plan.

However the commission says this isn't its final position.

Commission members are expected to discuss the issue at a meeting Thursday tomorrow night.

Lower Saucon planners voted against the zoning changes last September.

But township council has the final say.
