Vetarans group, Pittston Township spar over proposed facility for vets in need on the Bypass
That's what a national veterans group is saying after the Pittston Township Board of Supervisors recently declined to change the zoning on the former animal hospital on the Pittston Bypass to allow a Veterans' facility.
The Veterans Fund of the United States, which has its national office a stone's throw down the Bypass, planned to renovate the former Animal Emergency & Referral Hospital to house 30 veterans, including 10 senior veterans and 20 veterans in need. Those veterans would operate a café and train at a Veterans Culinary Institute that would be part of the new facility.
