A Hybrid In-Person/Zoom Event
Lower Allen Township is developing a Master Plan to identify and prioritize improvements for the Gettysburg Road Corridor, which extends from St Johns Road at the Borough of Shiremanstown east to 17th Street near the Borough of Lemoyne. The Gettysburg Road Corridor is known by many names including Simpson Ferry Road, Gettysburg Road, State Road, and Hummel Avenue.
As part of the planning process, a 2-day Urban Design Workshop event is being hosted on May 25-26, 2021. Members of the public are invited to attend the design sessions to help vision for the future and provide community input on this important corridor in the Township, which serves a variety of industrial and retail businesses as well as residents. The workshop will result in design renderings that will be used to inform Master Plan recommendations and visually showcase future improvements.
