The legal burden is on the YMCA to show the current zoning is improper.

I believe they would also have to show that any hardship they may be suffering is not the result of their own actions. Since the current zoning law would allow the Y to create additional parking on their C2 lot, I believe they have a heavy burden to show that the authority of the municipality ought to be breached.

This threat of an appeal is really all about scaring members of the Ligonier Borough council into submission. A valid tactic, true, but not a charitable tactic.
