Court Affirms Moon Meadows Closing Order

September 12, 2012 by   - () 1 Comment

The state Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania has affirmed an Erie County judge’s Oct. 5, 2011, order that closed Moon Meadows Campground, in Greenfield Township, over concerns about water and sewage at the site, the Erie Times-News reported.
The ruling, docketed at the Erie County Courthouse on Monday (Sept. 10), said Judge Shad Connelly used the proper discretion in issuing the order against the owner of the campground, Thomas Peckham and his wife, Patricia.
Thomas Peckham said on Tuesday he will continue to appeal Connelly’s court order. He said he can continue to operate Moon Meadows while the case is on appeal — an interpretation of the law that appears to be at odds with Connelly’s ruling and the state Department of Environmental Protection.
Moon Meadows is on Route 430 just west of Route 89.

    where are all those people out there that vow to help small business? I am sure there is a lot to this story as it has been going on for years. this campground is probably no different from other small campgrounds that i have been to that struggle to keep there heads above water and do the same as others have done but get over regulated by a department thats trying to prove a point. this man is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars battling in court when he could use that money to fix his campground. The law is not about the truth anymore. This man will have to walk away and probably penny less because someone with power won’t give up. I feel sorry for you Tom
