New business might pay fees monthly

WAYNESBORO, Pa. ? A new business coming to Washington Township, Pa., could be permitted to pay its impact fees in installments like the state liquor store has been doing. The township supervisors on Monday will hear consideration on the request for installments.

Gracie's Shop for pizza and subs has been targeted for the Wayne Heights Mall.

The mall would be responsible for $10,000 in impact fees for Gracie's, Township Manager Mike Christopher said.

He said he will recommend the township supervisors approve a monthly payment of $500 instead of requiring the money up front.

"We want to encourage in-feed to these existing places. ... I don't want us to be the reason new business doesn't come in," Christopher said.



Supervisors look at plans for buildings

WAYNESBORO, Pa. ? The Washington Township Supervisors on Wednesday got a look at plans for several commercial structures proposed on Skyhawk Drive in Zullinger, Pa.

"This was a unique plan because they presented two options on the final plan," said Eric Gladhill, a representative of the township's contracted engineering firm C.S. Davidson Inc.

One plan has a drive-thru for the bank and the other doesn't.

The plans were tabled for future consideration.
