It’s often been reported that a large development of nearly 700 homes will be part of this subdivision. But Pandl said it is not part of part one now before the commissioners nor would township zoning allow that type of residential development in that area.

She said that housing project would be north of Mertztown Road.

Other future phases of Jaindl’s subdivision not yet before the township could include 74 acres for a shopping center and 370 acres for a 4-million-square-foot warehouse.

The township planning commission recommended approval of the subdivision’s phase one in April 2011.

Township Solicitor Richard Somach said discussions about the project have been going on at planning commission and commissioners meetings for many months.

He said the resolution is the first time those who have followed the project will see it “finalized, compiled and all put into one place.”

“The developer has looked at it and is reasonably satisfied with it,” Erdman told commissioners on April 19.

Jaindl at one time threatened to put a quarry on most of the site.
