The Springettsbury Township Planning Commission will continue to review Springetts Commons development plans next month.

The commission took no action Thursday concerning the plans submitted in July by Vienna-York LLC.

A new development is being planned that would add an assisted-living facility, offices, restaurants and retail space in Springettsbury Township's commercial district.

The plans will be discussed during the planning commission's next meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19, said John Holman, the township's manager.

Upon a recommendation from the planning commission, the project could be the subject of a public hearing before township supervisors at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, Holman said.

Springetts Commons, with the official address as 2425 Industrial Highway, consists of 14 acres of land at the corner of Industrial Highway and Northern Way.

The submitted plan includes a 36,734-square-foot assisted-living facility to accommodate 150 residents and 25 staff members; a 4,000-square-foot medical office; two restaurants, each measuring 6,000 square feet; and more than 21,000 square feet of retail space.

The township's zoning ordinance allows for a broad definition of assisted living, so the facility could offer nursing assistance or be senior apartments, Patricia Lang, the township's community development director, has said.

Holman has said the plans fit into the community's town-center concept and York County's urban-development plan.
