Development's first phase approved
WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Forty-nine single-family houses in the first phase of Spring Run Estates won final approval from the Washington Township (Pa.) Supervisors on Monday, along with a provision allowing Accent Developers LLC to only base coat internal roads headed into the winter months.
That move is designed to reduce damage from construction vehicles.
"We've always required them to finish the road, but they wanted to try this," Township Manager Mike Christopher said.
The 180-unit Ryan Homes development will be built along Washington Township Boulevard east of Gehr Road. The Washington Township Planning Commission had recommended disapproval of the plans over concerns about a couple panhandle lots, but it was determined those homes front Gehr Road.
