A landslide behind some homes in the Majestic Hills community in North Strabane Township resulted in the closing of Forest Lane Drive and has homeowners worried their residences will become uninhabitable.

Homeowners attended Tuesday’s nonlegislative meeting of the township supervisors to show photos of a crack in the backyards of four homes that grew in about a week into a 30-foot slide.

The township closed Forest Lane Drive because trees and dirt from the slide has made it impassable.

North Strabane Township officials visited the plan earlier Tuesday. Business manager Andrew Walz said township representatives planned to meet Wednesday with residents, the homeowners association and the developer, Ryan Homes, to determine a remediation plan.

“We’ll be talking about what everybody’s planning to do going forward to resolve the slide,” said Walz.

One home was damaged by the slide, and owners of the other homes are worried that the hillside will continue to collapse and damage their homes.

Forest Lane Drive will be closed indefinitely.
