Integrity Bank can now move forward with plans to build a branch facility in Springettsbury Township.
The township's board of supervisors voted unanimously to approve development plans for the bank to build a facility on the one-acre site at East Market Street and Northern Way.
The proposed 3,900-square-feet facility will be built on the site previously used by All Tune and Lube shop. The shop's facility will be torn down.
"When you can do an improvement on a busy corner of the township, it's a win for everybody, including the community," said Gene Morris, project manager for Integrity Bank, based in Camp Hill, Cumberland County.
The bank plans to build a single-story facility with a drive through, as well as two driveways that lead to Market Street and Northern Way.
One driveway will have three lanes, while the other will have one lane that will provide access to an outside ATM machine, Morris said.
The site is zoned mixed-use with the Town Center Overlay, adding landscaping, architectural and other requirements to the development plan because of nearby residences.
Requirements include the facility having at least 25 percent glass transparency on any side facing the street, using an acceptable building color and architectural facade, and providing walkways for pedestrians.
The bank has a beautiful development plan that will exceed the requirements, said Jeff Lobach, managing partner with Barley Snyder, which represents the bank.
He said the bank also will have a plaza with two benches. The bank's brick features will have frosted white and gray coloring, Morris added.
The bank has been working on the project for more than two years and can now move forward in developing a timeline for groundbreaking and construction, Morris said.
Integrity Bank opened June 7, 2003 and now has more than $700 million in total assets. The bank has branch offices in Cumberland, Dauphin, York and Lancaster counties, according to its website at www.integritybankonline.com.
