#Newtown PA Supervisor John Mack Challenges Expert Witness at 18 Sep 2023 KRE Hearing 

After #NewtownPA Supervisor John Mack secured his right to hear and judge the evidence provided by KRE Upper Macungie Associates, LLC (“Applicant”) in its challenge to Newtown's zoning (read "Supervisor Mack Responds to KRE's Request to Recuse Himself from Hearing"), he asked the applicant's expert witness - Town Planner Thomas J. Comitta - to clarify remarks he made in his testimony.
Recall that KRE is seeking to build a multistory, 245-unit apartment building on Lower Silver Lake Road and has claimed that the Town's Zoning is unconstitutional because it doesn't allow such as use.
Mr. Mack focused on the applicant's claim that experts such as the Bucks County Planning Commission believe that the township requires such a use to satisfy the needs of a forecast of a substantial increase in population.
