The municipalities affected by the proposed Interstate 83 Exit 26 interchange will hold separate  meetings this week to hear public comments on the final draft of the plan.

The proposal lays out how municipal land use policies should be changed to prepare for significant increases in interstate accessibility, specifically if Exit 26 is approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration, and if the plan is funded.

These meetings are being held to hear public comments before the York County Planning Commission makes its recommendation to the county commissioners.

The meetings are as follows:

  • Conewago Township: 7 p.m. Sept. 27 at 490 Copenhaffer Road 
  • East Manchester Township: 7 p.m. Sept.28, 5080 N Sherman St. Ext.
  • Manchester Township: 7 p.m. Sept. 29, 3200 Farmtrail Road
  • Manchester Borough : 7:30 p.m. Sept. 30, 225 S. Main St.
