14 duplexes proposed in Waynesboro

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Fourteen duplexes are proposed to be built near Antietam Dairy in the southern portion of the Borough of Waynesboro.

The Waynesboro Planning Commission reviewed the land development plans Monday. The commission will advise developer Hometown Homes LLC to seek a time extension, allowing a consultant an opportunity to further review stormwater management plans.

Four duplex buildings are proposed facing South Church Street and three facing Old Mill Road where the roads intersect, according to plans before the Waynesboro Planning Commission.

“There are a total of 14 duplex units altogether,” Borough Engineer Kevin Grubbs told the planners.

Previous plans for the site called for town houses similar to the ones from the same developer in South End Villas on Ninth Street. Grubbs said permits and plans expired, so the developer needed to resubmit the proposal.

Changes were made with the resubmission.

The area has a large hole that needs to be filled, Grubbs said.

Consultant Dennis E. Black is continuing to review stormwater management plans for the project. That area of the borough has had issues with storm runoff.

The land will need a new round of infiltration testing, Grubbs said. The borough wants to ensure development does not result in standing water after storms, he said.

“We know this area is nothing but a fill area,” Grubbs said of the ground type.

The homes would be connected to public water and sewer systems. Each would have a garage and a parking space if developed as proposed.

Grubbs said the developer would create sidewalks on South Church Street and Old Mill Road. He said sidewalks are a priority of the Waynesboro Borough Council.
