1/22/2018:  The Township received a Zoning Permit application for an extractive operations use at the quarry property located at 2055 North Rockhill Road and that application was denied for reasons based on the East Rockhill Township Zoning Ordinance, including but not limited to the failure to secure special exception approval from the Zoning Hearing Board.
