MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Hampden Township Commissioners voted Thursday night to deny the rezoning of a residential area at Wertzville and Good Hope roads from a residential country zone to a commercial limited zone.

The developer had hopes to change the area to a limited commercial zone.

Some residents opposed to the rezoning suggested the idea was to keep commercial properties to the east of Good Hope Road and Interstate 81, not the west.

Commissioners proposed forming a community committee to better determine a best use for the area.
