PUBLIC NOTICE: Manchester Commerce Center Blasting – Canal Rd/Bear Rd Area & Rolling road block on I-83

Posted on: October 24th, 2023

The Township has been notified on behalf of the Developer, NorthPoint, that from Monday, November 6, 2023 thru Friday, November 9, 2023 between 11am and 2pm blasting will commence.

The blasting company has a PennDOT and DEP permit to have a rolling road block for I-83, 3-5days per week, for approximately 2-3 months, for drilling and blasting rock at the Manchester Commerce Center project located at 3895 Bear Road, York, PA 17406.

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.

*This will be continuously updated as the developer updates the township*

In Loving Memory of Steven H. Gross Jr.

Posted on: September 8th, 2023

Steven H. Gross Jr. passed away unexpectantly at the young age of 55 years old while serving as Chairman on the Board of Supervisors, Jan. 2000 – Sept. 2023; and Ag Security Committee, Jan 2014 – Sept. 2023. He previously served on Zoning Hearing Board, Jan 1997 – 1999. He meant a lot to the community and contributed thousands of hours to public service for the Township. This has been a shock to our staff, and we are working through the grief. He will be greatly missed. The Township is offering their support to the Gross Family in their period of mourning.


Snow & Ice Removal on Sidewalks

Posted on: November 8th, 2023

Snow and Ice Ordinance Section

All sidewalks shall be kept in an ice- and snow-free condition at all times. No notice will be given. Tickets can be issued. It is suggested to wait until after the snow plows come through to shovel your sidewalks because you do have 24 hours after the weather event ceases. If the snow plow pushes snow back onto your sidewalks, you are expected to clear them. Please do not shovel snow onto the streets to prevent this from happening. Sometimes it is inevitable and please remember that clearing the snow is a team effort between the Township, State, residents and businesses. Below is a helpful diagram on how to clear your driveway. Thank you.
