GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The Antrim Township Supervisors gave preliminary approval Tuesday to 110 new homes in two developments in the Greencastle, Pa., area.

That approval means the developers may proceed with installing roads and access to utilities, said Sylvia House, assistant zoning officer for the township.

She said the developers will have to come back to the supervisors for final approval.

R. Lee Royer, a local surveyor who spoke on behalf of the developer of Paradise Estates, said the 50-lot development off Hoffman Road would preserve existing vegetation and open space.


"All those newly planted trees will remain," said Royer. "We're trying to preserve all the natural features we can."

Accent Developers has proposed 50 single-family homes in Paradise Estates. The site is in the southwest portion of Antrim Township near Williamsport Pike.

Sixty homes for the next phase of Shadowcreek Development also received preliminary approval.

Royer said those single-family homes are the fifth of six phases of the development, which is near the site of Paradise Estates.

The developer of Shadowcreek Development is Ryan Homes, according to House.
