    Good News For Township Residents

    January 11, 2024
    Judge Murray's decision is a WIN for good government and the residents of Palmer Township. The decision of the court stated : “We conclude that the decision of the Board of Supervisors of the Township of Palmer to deny the conditional use application is based on substantial evidence. This standard is met when there is "such relevant evidence as a reasonable mind might accept as adequate to support a conclusion." EQT Production Company v. Borough of Jefferson Hills, 652 A.3d 1010, At 1025(Pa. 2019). Appellant Greystone Capital Inc. did not meet its burden of proving otherwise that it's application for conditional use satisfies the requirements for the subject zoning ordinance. Specifically, Appellant failed to adequately identify the end users and type of activity at the proposed property. With regard to these two issues, Appellant's evidence was speculative. Furthermore, Appellant failed to show that the proposed facility would comply with the noise control requirements under Section 190-158 of the subject ordinance.” https:// LVL Article: https://www.lehighvalleylive.com/news/2024/01/developers-appeal-to-build-palmer-twp-manufacturing-facility-is-denied-in-county-court.html?fbclid=IwAR2kRSPtSb6ICHAyJujX4JnU2Upvsycb1Xuhx9kBGVfPNR-woqVLmXYbIKI

    Supervisor Panella's Comments at the February 6th Board of Supervisors Meeting

    February 6, 2023
    Supervisor Ann-Marie Panella said, I've been a member of the Palmer Township Board of Supervisors since 2000. I was the second woman to serve on the Board, following Virginia Rickert. I was the first democratic woman elected. I've learned and hopefully I've taught. Palmer has been my home for 30 years. After much thought, I am announcing I am not going to run for re-election. I want to see more involvement from the community. The future is now. If you have been thinking about running, I have two quotes for you: The first from Linsay Fox. "If you believe you can make a difference, then you will make a difference. Believe in yourself, your family and your community and you will win." The second from John F. Kennedy. "One person can make a difference and everyone should try." I want to assure you that I will always be here for the people of Palmer and this community is in my heart.

Welcome To Palmer Township

Palmer Township is a community of approximately 22,300 people located near Easton, on the eastern end of the greater Lehigh Valley. Palmer prides itself in being a planned community for the last 55 years, and as a result, we have a mixture of home types, industrial centers and shopping facilities that meet most of the needs of our residents.

Palmer Township is located on the eastern side of Pennsylvania near the Delaware River and close to New Jersey. We are approximately 60 miles from both New York City and Philadelphia. In fact, many of our residents work in eastern New Jersey and New York (more).
