Traffic Light Project at Route 663 and Geryville Pike a Year Away
Written by Candace Perry, Correspondent

            The improvements to the traffic light at Route 663 and Geryville Pike are coming, but not for a year.

            The Upper Hanover Board of Supervisors heard a report from Anton Kuhner of McMahon and Associates on planning for the project at Tuesday night's meeting.

            The project is funded by a PennDOT grant received by the township for $494,600. The entire cost of the light is covered by the grant, including design, construction and equipment.

            Kuhner said that his firm would be doing traffic analysis to consider the upcoming warehouse developments that will be bringing more traffic through that intersection.

            The supervisors [[+] voted to accept McMahon's proposal.

            In personnel news, Supervisor Dorothy Diehl announced that Road Foreman Tom Latshaw is retiring. The board authorized advertising for his position, noting in particular that the job is for a "working" supervisor.

            In the fire marshal's report, Marshal Shawn Shade said that there was a house fire on Gravel Pike early in the morning of March 8, and though it could have been very dangerous, both occupants of the house escaped safely. He stated that code enforcement issues may be involved.

            In zoning news, the supervisors approved the advertisement of a public hearing for an age-restricted overlay district for ten parcels of land bounded by Kraussdale Road and Gravel Pike.

            Supervisor Stefan Laessig noted that the planning commission "went through many age-restricted developments, what we liked and don't like."

            Supervisor Tim Woodward said that the plan took a "lot of time in the making."

            In parks and recreation news, supervisor Laessig reported that the committee was working on a new policy for use of the ball fields. He said that they will be monitoring the field usage this year closely for the groups that have been approved to use them.
