During Wednesday night's Lansdale Borough Code Enforcement and Land Planning Committee meeting, one particular topic on the agenda stood out: bowling alleys. Over the past few weeks, there has been much speculation about Lansdale becoming a "two-alley community," with reports stating plans were underway to build bowling alleys in both the Hillcrest Shopping Center and the building where Super Foodtown recently stood at The Pavilion Shopping Center. Some reports even stated that Pavilion owner Joseph Grasso would "like to begin renovating in the next three to four weeks." Not so fast. Those reports can spin right into the gutter. Instead of speaking about the prospects of a new bowling alley (or two), Director of Code Enforcement John …
