Lower Swatara planners hear pitch to rezone North Union site


A proposal to rezone a tract of land near North Union Street and Route 283 in Lower Swatara Twp. would provide public water and sewer to an area that clearly needs it while providing a more appropriate use for the land, the owner said during a township planning commission meeting on Thursday, Aug. 27.

The land, whose size is in dispute from 19 to 30 acres, extends from North Union Street parallel to the eastbound ramp to Pennsylvania Route 283, ending about 100 yards before the path of the old Union Canal to the east. Owner Lee Dickerson applied to have it rezoned from suburban residential to commercial highway. 

The commission tabled the matter to continue the discussion at its meeting on Thursday, Sept. 24.
