Rpper Gwynedd officials discuss extension for microbrewery’s development plan
A microbrewery in rpper Gwynedd Township wants a 90-day extension to submit an updated land development plan to the board of commissioners.
However, the commissioners don’t appear to be that patient with the Prism Brewing Company.
At Tuesday’s workshop meeting, the commissioners appeared to settle on a 30-day extension for the business at 810 Dickerson Road.
The issue will be considered at Monday’s pub- lic meeting, according to Township Manager Len Perrone.
“We’ve been more than fair,” township solicitor Robert Kerns said during the workshop meeting. “This is about getting them to finish what they need to do.”
The microbrewery — located in an industrial zone — has issues related to parking and accessibility that it needs to comply with, according to Perrone.
“The business has been extraordinary slow in responding,” he said after the meeting.
Prism Brewing Company — started in 2009 by Rob DeMaria, according to the company’s website — presented a land development plan to township code enforcement officer Bill Lawrence in January, according to Perrone.
He said during the meeting that the plan includes no revisions.
Township staff discussed the situation with representative of the business July 2, according to Kerns.
Initially, the solicitor recommended that the board decline the 90-day extension request.
“We’ve been at this for months and months,” Kerns said during the meeting.
