Speed limit set at 25 mph for CV Avenue

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The speed limit on CV Avenue was set at 25 mph on Wednesday.

Waynesboro borough staff reported witnessing speeding problems on the road now that it has been reconstructed. The road re-opened Monday, after a months-long effort to repair its severe cracks.

The Waynesboro Borough Council voted unanimously to set the speed limit for the road between West King Street and West Main Street.

Borough might consider fees for recreation

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Staff members and a lawyer will be looking into a proposal to charge recreation fees on new buildings constructed in the Borough of Waynesboro.


Councilman Ronnie Martin suggested charging $400 for each new unit built. That money could be used for parks or other recreation like bike trails.

"It'd be nice to have shuffleboard someday for the retired folks. (Also), playground equipment is expensive," he said.

People will be able to sponsor trees at park

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Don McBride from the Memorial Park board of directors addressed the Waynesboro Borough Council on Wednesday and talked about the future of trees planted along the park's main walkway.

Two existing maple trees were evaluated and determined to be unhealthy, McBride said. Those will be removed, he said.

Starting in the spring, donations will be sought to replace the 32 trees planted in 1949 to honor veterans, according to McBride.

The park board has the names of those individuals.

Each new tree will be associated with a $250 donation.

"I'm sure you'll get a lot of response," Mayor Richard Starliper said.
