Backyard news, 10.14.08

* Below are headlines from tonight’s combined workshop meeting of the Lower Paxton board of supervisors and planning commission. Additional meeting notes will be posted later this week.

– Supervisors give OK for planning to proceed on a proposed business improvement district for the Route 22 corridor between Colonial Park Mall and Ollie’s Bargain Outlet. Linglestown and Paxtonia are not part of the mix at this time.

– Diocese of Harrisburg outlines plans for a new high school campus at the intersection of Spring Creek and Page roads. School officials propose closing the section of Spring Creek Road that borders the campus.

McNaughton Homes nears agreement with residents on the layout of a 91-unit luxury housing development on the slopes of Blue Mountain. Citizen watchdog group SWAN chairman Eric Epstein and LP board of supervisors chairman Bill Hawk have played a key role in negotiations with McNaughton.

* Beware of a possible scam at gasoline pumps. According to a Gazette reader, a middle-aged woman with a maroon-colored car has approached multiple motorists for a monetary handout because she had just run out of gas. At least one of the incidents took place at the Sheetz store on Linglestown Road.

* In news from just beyond our backyard, East Hanover Twp. residents have sued township officials over a zoning approval that clears the way for planning to proceed for a new shopping center near the intersection of Routes 39 and 22.

If this is a white haired woman and a little on the older side, I have "met" her while waiting for my husband to pick me up near my work and one night inside the parking garage driving around at the Hollywood casino. She is everywhere and has been doing this for quite some time.

Possible scam - did this woman actually receive money then from multiple individuals? It may well be a scam, but we should be careful to not jump to conclusions without more concrete proof.

The situation is billed as a "possible" scam. News tip was submitted by a longtime Gazette reader whom I regard as a reliable source. Also, see comment by "glassygirl."
