WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Proposals for two planned residential developments have been submitted in Washington Township, a municipality that has never seen one of the mixed-use housing developments built out.

Rod Krebs has submitted plans for Martin's Village, with 44 single-family houses, 110 town houses and 38 duplexes off Gehr Road and Washington Township Boulevard on the former Sam Martin farm.

Dan Long has a submission for 107 single-family homes, 48 duplexes and 78 town houses on Pa. 316 north of Waynesboro, about a half-mile beyond Tyco on the old Barlup farm.

Both must go before the Washington Township Supervisors for approvals and public hearings.

The only other planned residential development that remains on the books is M&H Construction's expansion of Sheffield Manor off Pa. 997, according to township zoning officer Jerry Zeigler.

However, home construction in that development has not started, Zeigler said.

"The market's not there, obviously," he said.

Zeigler said the township supervisors decided not long ago that planned residential developments should only be allowed on main roads around Waynesboro.
