Bucks County, Pa., zoning/cemetery dispute

When officials in Bucks County, Pa., reached agreement to establish a veterans cemetery in the vicinity of Washington Crossing National Park, area municipalities agreed to a Federal Cemetery Overlay ordinance, which essentially allows for higher density in order to preserve more open space for the cemetery. According to this report, some Newtown Township think the town prematurely closed the appeal process, once the main opposition reached agreement in a land deal that secured the parcels needed for the vet cemetery.
