Linglestown Gazette: Village parking lot update

Village parking lot update

Construction of the municipal parking lot near the square in Linglestown has been suspended until a PPL electricity pole in the entrance drive is relocated.

PPL is expected to move the pole in mid-September, according to Lower Paxton Township manager George Wolfe. Paving, line painting, and installation of light fixtures will be completed after the pole has been moved.

Blackberry Lane will be paved from the parking lot entrance east to N. Mountain Road.

The section of Blackberry Lane from the parking lot west to Blue Mountain Parkway will not be improved because there are outstanding questions on who owns various sections of the alley, said Wolfe.

Township officials decided to construct the 60-space lot to replace some of the parking spaces that will be eliminated by the square improvement project.

Partially completed parking lot behind the Chocolate Cafe on a lot next to Linglestown Life church.

Is it possible to get a picture that shows what kind of lighting will be installed in that parking lot?

They are sure having trouble with right-of-ways and ownerships of land with this whole project...

Re: type of lighting -- Based on the cement bases installed in the lot, my guess is modern light fixtures will be used. Click the link below to view a picture of the parking lot lights that were installed in Koons Park last winter:

On a related note, the Village of Linglestown Committee has recommended use of historic street light fixtures along Linglestown Road as part of the square project.

Re: trouble with right-of-ways -- The problem stems from vaguely written property descriptions on deeds. I bet this is fairly common in villages and towns founded in the 1700s.
