Borscht Belt Delicatessen Seeks Variance to Allow Neon Sign in Window

Borscht Belt Delicatessen Seeks Variance to Allow Neon Sign in Window | Newtown News of Interest |

Mike Dalewitz, Co-Founder of the Borscht Belt Delicatessen, is appealing the action of the Newtown Township Zoning Officer who has issued a Violation Notice regarding the neon window sign at the newly-opened store located at 2124 South Eagle Road (see photo).

Zoning Officer Received an Anonymous Complaint

Neon signs are prohibited by Zoning Ordinance, Section 1104(B)(2), which states that “any sign which is illuminated by inert gas or any form of exposed tubes is prohibited.” The Borscht Belt Violation Notice was sent via certified mail to Newtown Center Associates – owners of the shopping center – dated 6/13/23 after the zoning office received an anonymous complaint via phone call.
