The North Cornwall Township Board of Supervisors unanimously agreed to approve a revision to phase five of the land development plan for the Meadow Lanes Farm property at its meeting Tuesday.

The property, located at Gardenia Lane off of Walnut Street, will see 270 single-family homes constructed over five phases, with each lot a third of an acre or larger.

Developers requested an increase of 1,000 square feet of impervious coverage allowed in each lot for phase five.

Impervious coverage can include the homes themselves, sheds, pools, and other accessory buildings that may be constructed.

While they approved the request, supervisors urged DeSouza Brown Inc. to inform residents about the limit on impervious coverage on these properties, so that township employees do not need to break the news to future homeowners.

Supervisors also unanimously agreed to approve a stormwater management plan for the Lebanon Expo Center, which plans to install two 80-foot by 60-foot accessory storage units and adjacent gravel staging and parking.

They first unanimously approved accompanied documents for the plan, including the improvements guarantee and financial security.

Supervisors also unanimously agreed to grant a waiver allowing the plan to be submitted with an unconventional scale.

In other news, the board:

  • Heard that the township has received a $13,000 Marcellus Shale Grant Contract for updates to the Snitz Creek Playground. The township requested $25,000.
