Township OKs plans, but waiting for fees to be paid

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Washington Township Supervisors voted Monday to approve the final plans for the Pheasant Run Development, but to not release the plans until developers Kylea and Associates paid all bonding and recreation fees.

The development off Tick Ridge Road contains 89 building lots for single-family homes.

"They must do everything to satisfy us within 90 days," said Carroll C. Sturm, chairman of the Washington Township Supervisors.

"They're not getting our plans until we get the bonding and recreation fees," said Washington Township Solicitor John Lisko.

The conditions the developers have to meet are:

· Pay $1.4 million to the township for bonding fees

· Pay $71,200 in recreation fees

· Pay $1.5 million to the Washington Township Municipal Authority

"On the far west side of the development, (they are) required to screen as part of an earlier agreement," said Washington Township Manager Mike Christopher.


The evergreen screening is part of the $1.5 million Kylea and Associates must pay to the Washington Township Municipal Authority.

The supervisors also are requiring that the developers provide a drawing for a Highway Occupancy Permit because their development would impact the intersection of Koons Road and Pa. 16.

The developers had an unsuccessful auction of the property on July 25.

"The bidding didn't get up high enough," Sturm said.
