Doylestown development fines residents $400 for hanging colored holiday lights

    The holidays are a bit subdued in Dolyestown Station, where residents of the development are prohibited from hanging colored holiday lights on their homes.

    Fox29 was out there last night chatting up neighbors who settled for non-blinking white lights, and one resident who’s breaking the rule. If he’s caught, he’ll have to pay a $400 fine.

    A survey done by the board shows only a small percentage of development residents even bothered to weigh in on the rule, and those who did favor the white lights-only standard.

    Meanwhile, the Pottstown Mercury is compling a list of local holiday light displays around Montgomery and Chester counties. The map will grow was more people decorate, possibly even with colored lights.
