Waynesboro Borough Council starts process on hospital requests

October 18, 2007|By JENNIFER FITCH

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Waynesboro Borough Council on Wednesday started the process to rid itself of alleys and streets the local hospital wants to use in its expansion plan.

The council will advertise information about the roadways being abandoned. At that point, someone can petition for a public hearing on the matter.

The abandonment includes sections of North Enterprise Avenue, Prospect Avenue and two alleys.

Construction wouldn't start for at least a year, according to Bill Dick, a lawyer representing Waynesboro Hospital.

Wayne Driscoll, a resident of Sunnyside Avenue, said he and his wife are OK with most of the closures, except they would prefer to see definite plans for the site.

"We've been to two meetings, and each time, plans have been different," he said.

The hospital will not have exact plans at any hearing either, Dick said.
