Dispute over Hawley Silk Mill

While work was allowed to proceed, the project will be required to have an additional conditional use hearing to modify the existing permit, unless the actual deed is in place within 30 days of the meeting.

Waldorn later explained that a road in front of the Silk Mill had been moved in the 1960s, but a right-of-way remained on the books. It was the opnion of the borough council that this right of way had to be removed before work on that particular part of the site could proceed.

The partners first contacted PennDot about the matter in March 2009, and it has taken until now to have the matter nearly resolved.
