Williamsport zoning change would allow doctors and dentists to move into former Nabisco plant

WILLIAMSPORT -- Doctors and dentists' offices could be among the new businesses to move into the former Nabisco cookie distribution center property under a zoning change introduced Monday by the Williamsport Town Council.

The change would apply not only to that property, but to the entire "employment center district," an area along South Conococheague Street in the southern part of town set aside for uses that bring in job opportunities, town attorney Edward Kuczynski said. The resolution introduced Monday would amend the town zoning ordinance to allow medical or dental offices and out-patient clinics within the employment center district by special exception.

Paul Crampton Jr., president of Paul Crampton Contractors, petitioned the council for the change in June. Crampton's company recently purchased the former Nabisco property at 415 S. Conococheague St. and plans to turn it into a retail center, he told the Council during a public hearing Monday on the zoning change. The company has had some expressed interest from potential tenants in the medical-dental category, Crampton said.
