VAL­LEY VIEW — The He­gins Town­ship Plan­ning Com­mis­sion on Wed­nes­day ap­proved a sub­di­vi­sion plan for He­gins Val­ley Fire Res­cue Inc.

The sub­di­vi­sion was for an an­nex­a­tion of prop­erty, tax par­cel 13-16-0145.001. Known as “Par­cel A,” it’s lo­cated be­side what was for­merly known as Val­ley View Fire Com­pany. HVFR no longer uses the build­ing and prop­erty in Val­ley View to store fire trucks.

He­gins and Val­ley View fire de­part­ments merged to form He­gins Val­ley Fire Res­cue and built a fa­cil­ity in He­gins.

Com­mis­sion mem­bers giv­ing the nod were Robert Holzinger, Rus­sell Richard and Justin Edling. Di­rec­tors Ann Schillio, Guy Ju­lian and Dou­glas Lu­cas were ab­sent. Lu­cas was re­cently ap­pointed to a seat on the town­ship board of su­per­vi­sors and could not have voted Wed­nes­day, had he at­tended.

Tyler Starr, HVFR pres­i­dent, at­tended on be­half of the fire com­pany. He said HVFR hopes to have all its pa­per­work in or­der by mid-Oc­to­ber for a buyer of the former Val­ley View Fire Com­pany build­ing.

Par­cel A is at West Maple Street, Snooks Al­ley and West Wal­nut Street. It is zoned R-2, low/ medium den­sity, res­i­den­tial. The plan was dated Aug. 10 and re­ceived by Schuylkill County on Aug. 30.

The ad­ja­cent par­cel, Par­cel B, had al­ready been sold by HVFR and trans­ferred to Larry Cole­man, ac­cord­ing to Starr. It is an ex­ist­ing fam­ily dwelling with an ex­ist­ing on-site sewage sys­tem and is ser­viced by He­gins-Hub­ley Mu­nic­i­pal Au­thor­ity for wa­ter. The He­gins Town­ship Plan­ning Com­mis­sion and town­ship su­per­vi­sors had al­ready ap­proved the sub­di­vi­sion plan to cre­ate Par­cel B, but it was never recorded, ac­cord­ing to Al Swab, town­ship zon­ing of­fi­cer.

In other busi­ness, the com­mis­sion also ap­proved a sub­di­vi­sion plan for Thomas Sha­dle on East Moun­tain Road, He­gins.
