The developer of a Highfield housing plan is moving forward with legal action against the Butler Township Zoning Board concerning a decision about property density.
A status conference is scheduled to be held virtually on Wednesday at 10 a.m. in the Butler County Court of Common Pleas before Judge Tom Doerr for a civil case filed by developer Great Living LLC. Butler Township filed a notice of intervention on behalf of the Zoning Board.
After hearing from representatives for the developer of the 39 acre Highfield Trails plan on South Duffy and Highfield Roads earlier this year, the township zoning hearing board ruled that a version of the plan containing 113 units would not be allowed.
The Township’s Zoning Officer as well as the Township solicitor have both testified that the 113 unit proposal does not comply with the Township ordinance language concerning density requirements. No arguments will be made Wednesday but more information about how the case is expected to unfold is expected to be discussed.
In April the Butler Township Commissioners granted approval for a Highfield development plan with 100 units.
