Opposition to Powell Hayride Operation in Benner Township
The Powell family / Nittany Mountain Trail Rides are once again applying to conduct large hayrides at the property at Forest Pond Lane in Benner Township, continuing the loud and disruptive party scene that we suffered through last year.
Whether or not alcohol is involved, the sheer number of people, and the frequency of hayrides being conducted almost daily, creates noise pollution, safety concerns for the surrounding forest and adjoining properties, and economic concerns over decreased property values.
Even if you don't live near the hayride site, the approval of the Powell's application opens the door for other commercial enterprises like this to move into Benner township, decrease the quality of your property, and depress the value of your home. If you do not want Benner Township to become an extension of the Penn State party scene, please sign this petition which will be presented to the Benner Township supervisors at a hearing on Monday, July 27, 2015 at the Benner Township Building.
