Public hearing on Hampden Township zoning issues

Thursday night there is a public hearing about several acres of land in Hampden Township, Cumberland County.

A developer wants to rezone a little under 10 acres for commercial use and some residents are objecting.

The land, which sits between Wertzville and Good Hope Roads, is classified as a residential country zone but a developer wants that changed to limited commercial.

The developer says the township has identified this as a need and since the designation is, “limited commercial zone” the developer says this land won’t become a truck stop or a fast food area.

Some residents are not happy about the proposal, saying the idea was to keep the commercial properties to the east of Good Hope Road and 81, not the west.

The topic will be discussed at Thursday’s meeting at the Hampden Township Municipal Building at 7:30.
