Agriculture security area the focus of public hearing

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Washington Township (Pa.) Supervisors will host a public hearing Monday at 7 p.m. concerning the inclusion of Georg R. and Wendy L. Scott's property in the agricultural security area.

Including the Scotts' 100-acre property at 12575 Scott Road would grant the couple certain protections in the future. For example, if a residential development was built nearby, new homeowners could not bring action against the Scotts for tractor noise generated by regular farming activities.

Agricultural protection from the township also can be an early step in the process to seek state farm preservation.

The supervisors also have received an application for 54 acres owned by Brenda H. Brown at 11000 Wharf Road.
