Township planners OK building plans

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Washington Township planning commission moved forward on seven proposed developments and two subdivisions Monday, recommending that each be approved by the township board of supervisors.

The seven proposed developments ranged in size from the 159-lot Glen Oaks Development along Pa. 16 to a one-lot ice cream shop on Washington Township Boulevard.

While the commission recommended each plot plan for supervisor approval, most of its recommendations came with stipulations. The commission would recommend approval "as long as" developers addressed everything on the list that followed.

In addition to the many proposed developments, the commission also moved closer Monday to recommending the proposed sign ordinance for board approval. The ordinance, which has been a work in progress for months, will be sent to local businesses for comments.


"We are going to send to business community and if they have a problem with this, they can speak up," Washington Township code enforcement officer Jerry Zeigler said.
