RANSOM TWP. - At the Ransom Township Planning Commission meeting February 20, Andrew Massimilian, of Ransom Recreational Shooting Sports, LLC, requested a 160 -day extension from March 6 for submitting new plans for the proposed shooting range land development at 1500 Ransom Road. The Planning Commission voted to grant the extension.

During public input, Robert Lukiewicz introduced himself to the Township as the new Zoning Officer.

Ransom Township resident Hank Rowinski showed the Planning Commission a legal notice he found in a newspaper the previous week regarding Falling Springs Water Works, Inc. The notice stated that the corporation filed an application for approval with the Susquehanna River Basin Commission to withdraw surface water for use in the development of natural gas wells in the Marcellus Shale Region. The Planning Commission had no information about it, and said they would pass the notice on to the Board of Supervisors.

The next Ransom Township Planning Commission meeting will be held March 19, and the next Board of Supervisors meeting March 5, both at the Township Municipal Building, 2435 Hickory Lane.
