Around Town June 11

“Mt. Dirtmore,” (see photo above) the big pile of dirt on the Pettinaro property at Route 202 and Ridge Road, is nothing more than a stockpile of dirt, according to one company employee. The dirt is being stored for use at Pettinaro projects where the ground needs to be leveled. The pile came from the Wegmans development. Concord Township supervisors approved the Ridge Road property for a commercial development years ago, but so far there is no anchor store that wants to move in.
