WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Two developments won preliminary approval from the Washington Township Supervisors on Monday through 4-0 votes, with Supervisor John Gorman absent.
The first, commonly known as the Reynolds' Farm pumpkin patch, would have 14 homes.
"This is a preliminary plan, and, from what I understand, they're going to sit on it for a while," Township Manager Mike Christopher said of the Gehr Road farm.
Preliminary approval will push forward West End Development's plans to expand the Walnut Knolls housing development, which is under construction in the Borough of Waynesboro. Developer Ronnie Martin scaled back plans to reflect seven single-family homes on larger lots in the new phase (named Walnut Acres), after he was denied a rezoning request in the township.
The homes are engineered off a cul-de-sac and extension of West King Street.
Both sets of plans must go before the supervisors for final approval before building permits are issued.
