Blasting at Garrod Farm – Hillwood Trade 83 North Project

Posted on: October 5th, 2021

The Township has been notified on behalf of the Developer, Hillwood, that beginning the week of October 11, 2021, blasting will commence at the property most commonly known as Garrod Farm, located at the corner of Locust Point Road and Canal Road Extended.

PUBLIC NOTICE: ” We will not be Blasting at Trade Center 83 today due to Weather conditions.  We will be Blasting on Tuesday 11/23 and Wednesday 11/24 between 11 AM and 1 PM . If anything changes, I will contact you. ” 

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.

Ag Department Demonstrates Safe, Effective Lanternfly Traps

Posted on: May 24th, 2021

Lanternflies are now hatching, and the state Department of Agriculture is demonstrating how homeowners can use a circle trap to eliminate large numbers of destructive spotted lanternflies without harming beneficial pollinators or small animals. Click here for instructions from Penn State Extension on how to build the trap. Click here to learn more about the invasive species. Be sure to share this information with your residents.  

Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding shared some scary thoughts while reminding Pennsylvanians to be vigilant against the Spotted Lanternfly as the bugs begin laying eggs on flat surfaces to hatch in the spring. 

“Every Spotted Lanternfly egg mass not scraped and destroyed now is up to 50 more of these invasive, destructive bugs we can expect to hatch next spring,” said Redding. “We need every Pennsylvanian to hunt for egg masses this fall and winter and destroy them – or we’re in for a scary spring.” 

Spotted Lanternfly egg masses are a light gray wax-like substance that take on the appearance of mud and include 30-50 eggs. Egg masses can be found on many flat surfaces including trees, rocks, and outside objects such as picnic tables, playground equipment, grills, and sidings of homes. 

Property owners can scrape egg masses whenever encountered using a hard or rigid tool such as a credit card, putty knife, or a stick. Research has not yet confirmed whether egg masses can survive if scraped onto the ground, so it is best to scrape the egg masses in a downward motion into a container or bag with rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer. Click here for more.

I-83 Exit 26 Project – York County Planning Commission

Posted on: August 18th, 2020

Click here to view the Page Information for this Project

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.
