News and Alerts
The Township has been notified on behalf of the Developer, Core5 Industrial Partners, that on January 13, 2021 the project will be doing blasting at 12:oo PM. With 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.
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.
Please do not park on streets and cul-de-sacs during a snow event.
Our goal is to clear all streets within 18-24 hours after snow has stopped falling.
Plowing, blowing, or shoveling snow onto township streets is strictly prohibited.
Sidewalks must be cleared within 24 hours after snow/ice event. Do not pile snow between the street and sidewalk, it could be pushed back on the walk by the passing plow.
Note: State Roads are NOT plowed by East Manchester Township.
