Although it would be best if things could
always stay as they are today…for ever and ever,…the fact that we are
dealing with a few tracts of contiguous land, which are bisected by two
high-capacity electrical easements, two high-capacity gas line
easements, in a “ NO ZONING “
township,...lying in a county which is economically depressed and, which has a history
industrial incursions into residential " green fields ",...we are
concerned that Kennerdell may be desirable to several
classes of industrial suitors and we would like to see Kennerdell become
something other than the industrial dumping zone for southern Venango
If you're on this
web-site, We know
you'll agree that Kennerdell is a great place and that it deserves a
chance to move forward in a manner which is proper. If you really
think about it, It would have been best if the acreage surrounding
Kennerdell were still owned by the timber and the paper companies...or,
better yet, the government. All the prior owners really cared
about was letting the trees grow...until they were big enough to
harvest. Now, acre by acre, these large tracts of land have all
been harvested and the remaining land, viewed as a inconsequential bi-product to their
industry, is now being sold.
Thanks to National City,
We now have an
opportunity to neutralize a small part of this situation...at least the
area surrounding Kennerdell, and, we encourage you to do the same. It’s our intent over the next 10 years, to shift the current real estate tax burden from
our shoulders to the shoulders of individuals, each capable of making a measurable contribution to the area. By erecting
medium - high value homes on moderately sized building sites, we would expect a fair number of new jobs to be created in (and brought
into ) Southern Venango County, as well as a significant, long-term contribution to be made
toward the local community’s tax base.
UPMC / Northwest’s decision to build a $100M medical facility, 8 miles down the road, leads us to believe we may capture a percentage of the “new home starts“ which normally
accompanies this type of development. We truly believe The Kennerdell Area has a lot to offer,
and given it's our choice, We’ve decided we would rather have residential neighbors than the alternative. Continuing to carry the tax burden
is not an option!! Good
Ideas are Always Appreciated.
As in the past, We know we can count on an appropriate level of support and guidance from our elected local, county and state governing officials, as we know it is within their charter to facilitate long-term economic growth and expansion into Southern Venango County.
We are glad to be
Americans living in Northwestern PA !!
