Lower Paxton supervisors oppose zoning change

Lower Paxton Township supervisors last night rejected a developer’s bid to rezone 36 acres at the northwest corner of Locust Lane and Fairmount Drive.

Lower Paxton Township supervisors last night rejected a developer’s bid to rezone 36 acres at the northwest corner of Locust Lane and Fairmount Drive.

George Parmer, president of the nonprofit Parmer Family Foundation Inc., wanted to develop three six-story housing buildings for people 55 and older.

To accommodate Parmer’s plans, the supervisors would have had to change the Dauphin County tract’s designation from residential cluster zoning to institutional.

Public outcry against Parmer’s project caused the supervisors to reject the change, Township Manager George Wolfe said.

Parmer is also president of Swatara Township-based Fine Line Homes.
