"Haycock Camp witnesses fail to allay concern over expansion plan"

Like many of you, I attended the last two Springfield Township conditional use hearings to consider the Haycock Camping Ministries expansion plans. To accommodate crowds, the meetings were held in the Springtown Fire Company. The meetings were on Tuesdays, a workday for many of us. The public part of the first meeting I attended lasted 3 hours, ending at 10:00 pm. The second one lasted 3 1/2 hours, ending at 10:30 pm. Of all the important questions and information shared at these meetings, one of my biggest takeaways was the remarkable dedication of the supervisors and residents. Over and over, neighbors spoke up asking questions and sharing concern for the environment, wildlife, road safety, peace and quiet, and preservation for the heritage and character of the community they know and love, often for generations. To me, this  kind of civic involvement is love of country (literally!) at its humble and honest best. The Bucks County Herald provided this sound coverage of the last meeting, "Haycock Camp witnesses fail to allay concern over expansion plan." Thanks for the reporting Barrie-John Murphy.
