The Township has been notified by Kinsley Construction on behalf of the Developer, Core5 Industrial Partners, that on November 24, 2020, the project will commence with blasting and/or night work. For night work, you may experience noise disturbances within the nightly hours.
Using explosives are highly regulated and requires permits at the state level. Per Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), many people are often concerned about the effects blasting may have on their home because blasting may cause homes to shake. The effects of blasting may rattle windows, dishes and pictures hung on the wall.
Please call the Township Office to receive the site contact information for any concerns or complaints regarding this project. Blasting reports are required by the Township Ordinances and are public record upon request to review. We do not receive these reports right away. It does take a few weeks for the Township to receive them.
You may also contact DEP for further complaints in regards to Explosive Regulation in Pennsylvania. The second page of this document gives contact information.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.
The I-83 Master Plan recommended a new interchange — Exit 26 at SR 921/Canal Road —to alleviate area congestion and improve traffic flow at Exit 24 to the south (SR 238/Church Road; Emigsville) and Exit 28 to the north (SR 297/North Susquehanna Trail; Strinestown).
If Exit 26 is approved by PennDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the new interchange will take several years to fund and build. Meanwhile, development pressure in the vicinity of future Exit 26 will likely intensify.
The four adjacent municipalities—Conewago, East Manchester, and Manchester townships and Manchester Borough—are proactively preparing a land use plan for the Exit 26 impact area (parcels within a five-minute drive of the proposed interchange or other areas identified by the steering committee). The plan may affirm current zoning or recommend revisions in one or more municipalities. The plan’s recommendations would be implemented through municipal zoning updates.
East Manchester Township will continue curbside leaf collection service this year. Leaf pick up will begin November 2nd and last until December 11th.
