Edward M. Wild represented the Beans Family Partnership before Plumstead Township in March, 2012 resulting in Plumstead Township’s approval of land development plans to redevelop a commercial tract on North Easton Road in Doylestown.
The 9 acre site is now approved for two separate automobile dealership facilities. The approved plans include additional showrooms and service areas as well as substantial additional storage and automobile display areas.
Earlier Ed had secured Zoning Hearing Board approval to allow three separate commercial lots to be developed for retail and commercial occupancy at the site. Based on the most recent approved plans, earlier approvals will be withdrawn.
Also in late February 2012, Discovery House Inc., a national provider of methadone treatment services, secured its remaining inspection approvals for its location at 2755 Philmont Avenue in Lower Moreland Township. In 2011, the Lower Moreland Township Zoning Hearing Board sustained the appeal of neighbors opposed to a methadone clinic where Lower Moreland had issued permits for a use the Zoning Officer designated as professional offices.
Ed filed a curative amendment and claims for other relief and asserted that the Zoning Ordinance was exclusionary. Lower Moreland later declared its Ordinance defective. The Montgomery County Court approved a stipulated agreement that recognized Discovery House’s right of occupancy. As a result of Ed’s involvement, all patients continued to receive uninterrupted treatment and Discovery House was able to operate without further interference.
On March 26, 2012, a case Ed was handling proceeded to trial in the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas against a regional swimming pool contractor. The case settled on the courthouse steps with the pool contractor agreeing to replace the pool and spa on the property early this summer, at its expense.
