GREENCASTLE, PA. - Preliminary plans for nearly 700,000 square feet of warehouse space on Hykes Road in Antrim Township are expected to go before the Antrim Township Planning Commission during its Jan. 7 meeting, according to Township Manager Ben Thomas.

WCN Properties LP of Chambersburg submitted plans in early December for a 682,500-square-foot warehouse at 1254 Hykes Road, one mile from Interstate 81 Exit 1, Thomas said.

The warehouse is proposed to be 1,050 feet by 650 feet, according to Angela Garland, Antrim Township Zoning/Code Enforcement Officer.

According to the plans, the site includes 80 acres zoned industrial and medium-density residential.

The Industrial zoned land and R-2 zoned land are separated by the Norfolk Southern Rail. The warehouse is proposed to be built on the 45 acres of land zoned as industrial, according to the plans. The site will also have car and truck parking.

The plan must be reviewed by the Antrim Township Planning Commission, Municipal Authority, township engineers, the Franklin County Planning Commission, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and the Soil Conservation District. After review, the plan will go before the Antrim Township Board of Supervisors, Thomas said.


"The first public step will be before the Antrim Township Planning Commission," Thomas said Wednesday.

Thomas does not believe the plan will go through all the review phases before it goes before the planning commission. A decision on the plan could take several months, Thomas said.

The Antrim Township Planning Commission is required to take official action on the preliminary plan within 60 days of the meeting in which it first reviews the plan.

Details about use of the warehouse or who will use it are not yet available.
