Gap Road, 15 Lots, 11.30 acres, zoned R-C, owned by Thomas Lehman and Steven Snyder,
submitted by Hoover Engineering Services, Inc.
Chairman Klotz stated for the record that the applicant tabled the Avery Glen Subdivision plan.
Final Land Development Plan for Millennium Way Dental Studio, located at 2220 Millennium Way, 1 Lot, .98 acres, zoned C-P-L, owned by The Joon Group, submitted by Navarro & Wright Consulting Engineers, Inc.
Jason Gutshall, Navarro & Wright Consulting Engineers, was present to speak concerning the Millennium Way Dental Studio submission.
Chairman Klotz asked for an explanation of why this submission was being presented again to the Planning Commission. Manager Metts replied that the applicant chose to not request a waiver from the Board of Commissioners relative to the submission of a preliminary plan because of the Road Participation Agreement. He said the proposed project is in the footprint of that corridor. Manager Metts said Township staff asked the applicant if they were agreeable to making a contribution on behalf of the agreement based upon the number of traffic trips. He said the applicant could confirm this evening that they chose not to contribute in the Road Participation Agreement. He said they did not ask the Commissioners to grant the waiver, and hence the reason they returned to the Planning Commission meeting with a final plan. Mr. Gutshall confirmed that was a correct statement.
Manager Metts asked if the applicant was not agreeable to the Road Participation Agreement. Mr. Gutshall replied that was correct. He said their client chose to remove all waivers from the plan.
Manager Metts asked if there were any changes to the plan since the May 29, 2014 Board of Commissioners’ meeting.
Mr. Gutshall said the only change besides the preliminary/final was a grading comment that they shifted some of the grading away from the Right of Way line. He said grading comment could have been left on and a waiver requested or modify it slightly.
Mr. Gutshall said since they last presented to the Planning Commission, they received for the project the Erosion Control Permit from the Cumberland County Conservation District.
Mr. Miller said the majority of the Township’s comments are administrative in nature.
Mr. Miller said looking at the stormwater calculations; the applicant meets the ordinance requirements. He said they may have some minor discussion relative to the comments. Mr. Gutshall said there is a channel that goes from the outlet on the bottom left to the culvert that goes toward the road. He said on their revised plan they added riprap all along that.
Mr. Kelly said his comments were mostly minor. He asked the applicant to show a supply loading and unloading area.
Mr. Gutshall said they have space to show one.
MOTION by Vice Chairman Stephens to recommend approval to the Board of Commissioners the Final Land Development Plan for Millennium Way Dental Studio, located at 2220 Millennium Way, 1 Lot, .98 acres, zoned C-P-L, owned by The Joon Group, submitted by Navarro & Wright Consulting Engineers, Inc., PC File #14-06-02, Time Limit Deadline of September 10, 2014, subject to the favorable resolution of Township and County comments.

MOTION by Ms. Williams to adjourn the Planning Commission Meeting. The motion, seconded by Vice Chairman Stephens, carried unanimously.
