122-lot plan wins preliminary approval

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Preliminary approval has been recommended for 122 lots off Orchard Road in Washington Township, Pa.

The planning commission gave its blessing to the single-family homes at its meeting Monday, and the plans will go before the township supervisors.

Developer B2M2 of Waynesboro designed Washington Township Boulevard, a relief route for Pa. 16 traffic, between Pa. 316 and Pa. 997, Township Manager Mike Christopher said.

That design process delayed the request for approval, he said.

Development to go up for auction

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - An 89-lot residential development off Tick Ridge Road in Zullinger, Pa., is scheduled for public auction later this month, according to Washington Township Code Enforcement Officer Jerry Zeigler.


A developer can buy the land and plans at auction, he said.

Regardless, the Pheasant Run development of single-family houses won a recommendation for final approval from the planning commission on Monday's 4-1 vote, with commission member Elena Kehoe voting against it.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Revised preliminary plans were approved Monday for the 219 single-family houses planned at Washington Township Boulevard's intersections with Pa. 997 and Tomstown Road.

Countywide Development Inc. lost two lots of its plan when the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation balked at one of its proposals.

"PennDOT would not grant them approval to put driveways on Tomstown Road ... so they had to redesign their development," said Jerry Zeigler, township code enforcement officer.

The township planning commission will recommend the supervisors OK the preliminary plans with a waiver for the rule about houses not fronting two roads.

WAYNESBORO, PA. - The second phase of the Spring Run development in Washington Township, Pa., will be recommended for approval by the planning commission.

Phase Two submitted by Accent Developers would add 69 lots to the development near the intersection of Gehr Road and Washington Township Boulevard.
