At the May 9 Allen Township Board of Supervisors meeting, the board discussed an amendment to the special events center ordinance. If approved, the amendment would “permit a banquet facility as an accessory use to a farm, vineyard or winery,” according to Solicitor Lincoln Treadwell.
It would also allow for a 62-foot maximum building height in agriculturally zoned districts for buildings associated with the banquet facility when used in accordance with a farm, vineyard or winery.
The amendment was proposed by Ron Check, of Setter Hill LLC.
Supervisors approved a motion to send the ordinance to the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission and the township planning commission for review.
At the Oct. 11, 2022, supervisors meeting, Check proposed a special events center at 639 Old Carriage Road. The event center would include a cottage, wedding/reception venue, chapel and horse farm.
Supervisors unanimously approved the preliminary and final development plan as well as a liquor license transfer from Black & Blue, 638 Walnut St., Easton, in October.
Supervisors also approved a study for a three-way stop sign at Atlas Road and Phyllese Drive.
The board next meets 6 p.m. May 23 in the fire department building, 3530 Howertown Road.
