LMT's Wiki Photograph Soon to be Extinct

Never noticed this before. I've been to the township wiki page many times. The photograph I believe is of the Jaindl tract.

I never noticed this before. I've been to the township wiki page many times. But check out the photograph. The picture I believe is of the Jaindl tract. It's either a small part of the tract or directly adjacent. And yes, the photo would represent only a small portion of the immense warehouse project. Looks to be about 20 acres. Just a small speck of the 700 acres. That's how immense this development could be.

Interestingly enough this scene will be plowed over and replaced with a giant warehouse, maybe a parking lot for tractor trailers or perhaps a storm water retention basin.

Hilltop Rd. connects with Mertztown Rd near the Butz-Leister farm

Maybe it's time someone submits a new photo for our wiki entry? Since this is the last part of the township that looks this the photograph does it really make sense anymore?

This scene may disappear and become extinct in the township. And it's solely because of a choice made by our commissioners in 2010.

I agree. It's terrible how scenes like this have disappeared. They were, after all, the reason some of us moved out to LMT in the first place. How we need smart growth.
