A change to plans for a vacant piece of land in the Village of Cranberry Woods will bring new business to the Route 228 corridor.
Developers recently presented a new conditional use application revising the permitted use for the 57.11-acre plot of land near Route 228 and Franklin Road. Situated next to the Hilton Garden Inn, the plan calls for a new Sheetz gas station and convenience store located along Route 228 with right-in, right-out access.
A second access point will be created to benefit the development, as well as neighboring SSC Tool & Supply from Franklin Road.
A street system connects the remainder of the plan that will feature restaurant space with drive-thru access, as well as a daycare with an outdoor play area. Other retail buildings and office space are also to be built as part of the plan.
The changes differ from the original Village of Cranberry Woods development, which features a hotel, senior housing and apartments. It was introduced in 2008 as a Community Character Development project, which allows for the use of land to change through the permitting process.
A public hearing on the changes was held during the November 20 Board of Supervisors meeting, with Supervisors granting approval thereafter.
