11 - 20 - 2013 Historic Bellefonte Garman Theatre soon to be a memory
[CDT] - The Bellefonte Borough solicitor filed a motion on behalf of the Bellefonte Industrial Development Authority to quash a Bellefonte Historical and Cultural Association request to the Commonwealth Court for an injunction preventing the demolition of the historic Garman Theatre by a developer. The solicitor wrote in his motion that the Association has no standing because Centre County President Judge Thomas King Kistler declared that they not a party in the matter and denied its petition to intervene. He added that the appellate courts have the power to name the Association a party in the matter but because it doesn’t have standing, the injunction request should be thrown out & the court quash the petition for appeal. He said that “We did everything that the law required us to do,” and “Quite honestly, we just want to be done with the thing.”
