Interested members of the public may also email comments to m.takita@fallstwp.com, or mail public comments to Matthew K. Takita at 188 Lincoln Highway, Fairless Hills, PA 19030.  If any member of the public is requesting party status to the application or requires an accommodation to participate in the public hearing, please contact the Township as outlined above at least five (5) days prior to the public hearing.

The Zoning Hearing Board decides who may participate in the hearing before it as a party, subject to Section 908(3) of the Municipalities Planning Code (MPC).  The MPC permits party status to any person “affected” by the application.  Having taxpayer status alone is not enough to claim party status; however, a person whose property or business abuts the property that is the subject of the appeal is affected and should qualify as a party.  Ultimately, the ZHB makes the party status determination after reviewing the request.
