It’s Happening: Mt. Lebanon School District vs. Zoning Hearing Board of Mt. Lebanon

A few days ago, the Zoning Hearing Board released its decision and findings of fact that denied the Mt. Lebanon School District the variances it had sought for its planned reconstruction of the high school. Now, the School District has appealed the decision to the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas.

In Mt. Lebanon School District vs. Zoning Hearing Board of Mt. Lebanon, the School District asks the Court to grant both of the denied variances (one for lot coverage, one for parking spaces) and sustain that the lot coverage and parking spaces, as planned, are permitted as a matter of right under Mt. Lebanon Zoning Code.

A copy of the appeal was served upon the Mt. Lebanon Zoning Board on April 27, 2010.

Update (5/2/2010): Added the following article from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette -- Zoning flap gets appeal in Mt. Lebanon

The Zoning Hearing Board says it is a bad plan. 3,500+ signatures say it is a bad plan. Why doesn't the school board get the message? This is sinful.

This is absurd. The first thing that came to mind when reading this was Matthew's point, above, related to tax money. Mt. Lebanon residents' tax dollars are being used to fund a school board attack against the municipality, where our tax dollars will be used by the municipality to defend itself. We have many lawyers in Lebo - isn't there something that can be done? Are the board members in any way breaching their fiduciary responsibilities?
