Agreement paves way for Campus Heights phase three to get started

Posted

The Lower Swatara Board of Commissioners unanimously approved an agreement which will allow site work on housing for Penn State Harrisburg students to start.

The plan for phase three of Campus Heights was approved in October. The plan calls for 32 parcels to be combined into one property on which 14 student housing buildings totaling 84 units will be constructed.

The commissioners tabled the agreement, which would allow Campus Heights to remove the homes, stabilize the site and install stormwater management features, during their June 5 meeting after commissioners voiced concerns over one resident who still lived on the site.

Campus Heights’ attorney Ambrose Heinz said the resident moved out Sunday. Additionally, the agreement was revised to include Commissioner Ron Paul’s suggestion for language that residents’ utilities and access would not be impeded.

Heinz anticipated that demolition would start this week, and it appears that some demolition work had begun by Monday.

“We’re trying to get this wrapped up so we can move ahead,” he said.

This new phase of Campus heights will be located to the south of Dauphin Street and bordered by North Lawrence Street to the west and the township line to the east.
