Lawrenceville United, represented by Tom Madigan of Pepper Hamilton, attended the zoning hearing on April 11th to oppose the variances and special exceptions requested for the proposed Development at 41st and Butler, which includes an expansion of the Thunderbird Café. Several residents, in addition to Lawrenceville United, Lawrenceville Corporation, and Councilman Patrick Dowd attended to testify in opposition. The community organizations support the current Thunderbird as it exists now, but opposed an expansion because of the impact it could have on the adjacent residential and commercial corridors. A decision should be made after attorneys for both parties submit Findings upon receipt of the transcript and the Zoning Board’s review. Thank you to all of the residents who have worked so hard on this issue and those who took time out of their day to attend the hearing.
Update: Zoning has approved the Development at 41st and Butler. Currently Lawrenceville United is appealing the decision.
