Panel hears about Otterbein plans

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Waynesboro (Pa.) Planning Commission on Monday received a brief informational presentation about Otterbein Church's plans for a new church on Welty Road.

The church owns property near the Brimington Farm development.

"We're not even sure what the size is going to be at this point," Director of Borough Engineering Kevin Grubbs said.

"You'll be seeing more of it very shortly," promised Merle Holsinger on behalf of the church.

He mentioned plans to "develop the western portion of the property into athletic fields."

Holsinger said the church is working with both the Antietam Watershed Association and Chesapeake Bay Foundation to preserve wetlands in the area.

Decision on Locust Street house delayed

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Developers Darwyn Benedict and Mike Henicle agreed to a 30-day extension on the review of their plans for a house on Locust Street in Waynesboro.


The plans have stirred debate among residents and borough officials whether houses should be built on alleys. Locust Street is not ordained as a street.

The extension would allow the borough solicitor more time to thoroughly review the details, according to Director of Borough Engineering Kevin Grubbs.
