Artisan Constr. Grp., LLC v. Zoning Hearing Bd. of Upper Pottsgrove Twp.

The Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court disagreed with the Court of Common Pleas that this appeal should be quashed. Upper Pottsgrove Township appealed a zoning issue and served its statement of errors on the trial court via UPS. The trial court opined that the appeal should be quashed because the litigant did not include a United States Postal Service Form 3817 (Certificate of Mailing). The Commonwealth Court disagreed, holding that a commercial carrier like UPS is acceptable for making service. The Court, therefore, ordered the trial court to issue an opinion reaching the merits of the matter.
