not make it the “same” fertilizer
That’s because NA-CHURS starts
with only the highest-quality raw
materials- These are formulated into
a solution that won't separate
and settle out like many poor-quality,
suspension liquids. That’s why
NA-CHURS stores safely over win
ter, giving you the advantage of
lower fall pnces and planting time
application as early as you're ready

The new ordinance was
worked out between plan

add township supervisors
following the public outcry
on September 4.
Frank Myers, Lancaster R
6, member of the Planning
Commission, called the new
ordinance a “compromise
ordinance,” but added, “The
one bright spot is that there
will be a study on the
establishment of «n " ex

He said that depending
upon the outcome of the
survey of affected lan
downers, and according to
how the district is set up,
some of the restrictions now
in force would probably be
waivered within that
The announcement of the
proposed survey concerning
the ag district was made by
Township Solicitor. Charles
B. Grove, Jr., at the outset of
the meeting.
, He said, “I would urge the
superintendents to consider
an exclusive agricultural
district. I feel there is strong
sentiment for us. The
Planning Commission >has
offered to conduct a survey
of pfoperty holders.”
When questioned about the
few people in attendance,
Myers said, “Farmers
pretty well felt there was
little negotiating room.”
Bichard Haas, Lancaster
R 6, added, “There is a
degree of interest. Farmers
'are interested, but up to a
Myers commented that the
adopted ordinances contains
“more liberal interpretation
of special exceptions.”
He said one of the original
problemsand objections was
with farmers’ being
restricted in building
housing that would allow
them to have viable
economic units. A beef and
tobacco farmer, Myers said
be felt the Planning Com
mission, “did a good job in
ironing out the problems.”
Karl Hess, Lancaster R 6,
said of the ordinance,
“Anything different from the
original draft was a step in
the right direction, the
original draft was totally,
unacceptable.” Hess is Vice
Chairman of the Pequea

Lancaster Farming, Saturday, Septembar 27,1910—A33
There were several
changes in the language of
some of the sections, and one
was to allow temporary
portable structures /lor
selling agricultural produts,
such as roadside stands.
Specific regulations for
these structures are spelled
out, but formerly a special
exception would have had to
be granted. ' 1
In answer to a specific
question about the
positioning of calf hutches,
supervisors said there were
no restrictions on the small
portable housing units.
The new ordinance uses •
125 feet as the limit for
setback from the property
lines and streets. Formerly
the ordinance required a 200
feet setback, and the Lan
caster County Planning
Commission had recom
mended that the longer
distance be maintained.
Under the new ordinance,
poultry houses of 10,000 birds
or more will need to get a
special exception, and will
be required to submit a plan
for manure management
which will provide for use of

odors and other en
vironmental problems.
In explaining the
provision, Grove said that
the language allows the
Zoning Hearing Board to
tailor the equipment to the
needs of individual cases.
Manure handling under
the new ordinance will be in
accordance with standards
published in the Department
of Environmental Resources
manual, “Manure
Management for En
vironmental Protection.”
In accepting the new or
dinance, the supervisors
incorporated all the changes
suggested by the Lancaster
County Planning Com
mission but one. The
Commission also recom
mended that they strengthen
the agricultural district
regulations to help alleviate
Some inherent conflicts. It is
hoped that the survey on a
proposed agricultural
district will help clarify
these regulations.
