Arcona TND slated for Lower Allen planning commission

By ,

A traditional neighborhood development slated for 248 acres in Lower Allen Township will come before the municipality's planning commission later this month.

Arcona, the most ambitious project yet from Lancaster-based Charter Homes & Neighborhoods, is planned for land adjacent to Lisburn, Rossmoyne and Arcona roads.

Charter has submitted revised plans for the Cumberland County development. It is proposing a total of 1,664 residential units and 234,500 square feet of mixed-use and commercial space, with a core neighborhood of 89 acres.

The Arcona master plan also sets aside 97 acres of open space.

The first neighborhood in the development — Highpoint — would be built on 44 acres at Lisburn and Arcona roads. The plan is 164 residential units and 19,170 square feet of mixed-use space.

Charter is planning to start with 30 acres of development in Highpoint. That would include 55 single-family detached and 29 single-family attached homes, as well as 17 mixed-use residential units and 13,410 square feet of commercial and 5,040 square feet of office space.

A transportation impact study for Highpoint has been submitted, according to the township. A study for the overall master plan is being prepared.

The planning commission will review the Arcona plans at 7 p.m. Jan. 21 at the township office.
