HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — The public is invited to voice their opinions regarding concerns of the construction of four proposed warehouses along a busy stretch of Route 322 in Dauphin County.
The warehouses would add about 400 jobs to Swatara Township.
Some say the warehouses would boost the tax base while others are worried about their property value, air quality, and noise pollution.
The land in question is wooded right now and is about 165-acres in size bordered by Penhar Drive on the west and Mushroom Hill Road on the east.
Swatara township changed its zoning laws in 2017 to allow warehouses in this district.
The township sits near 283, 83, 81 and the Turnpike and that’s why leaders say they want to invite commerce and business, so they can have easy highway access.
A public hearing is set for November 13 at 8 p.m. at the Township building where residents can voice concerns directly to developers and township leaders.
