Falls Supervisors Approve Business Expansions, Update Audience Meeting Participation
With an eye on business growth in Falls, the Supervisors approved additions for two township businesses during Monday’s board meeting.
The board voted 4-0 to grant preliminary and final land development approval to Hiossen Inc., to expand its dental implants manufacturing business at 85 Ben Fairless Drive with construction of a 36,468-square-foot building addition to its existing 27,000-square-foot industrial building. The addition will consist of 32,672 square feet of industrial space on the first floor and 5,796 square feet of office space on a partial second floor.
A Hiossen representative told the board that enhancements will include additional greenspace, as well as a walking trail around the property.
In other business, the board voted 4-0 to permit Grand Affairs Party Rentals to build a 3,190-square-foot addition to store tables, chairs, and other party rental supplies. The space would not be open to the public and would not serve customers. Its sole use would be storage.
Supervisor Jeff Boraski was absent from the meeting.
In another matter, the Falls Supervisors, beginning with its June 20 board meeting, will require in-person participation from audience members who wish to address the board during public comment. Since the pandemic, the board has permitted public comments via telephone or Zoom.
