  • The project includes a 2,626 square-foot building, three drive-through lanes and 21 parking spaces.
  • Two access points along S. Queen will be relocated to access an access road into the York Value Center.

The site of the vacant Citizens Bank building at 2124 S. Queen St. will soon be a brand new Members 1st Federal Credit Union. 

The York Township Board of Supervisors approved 5-0 the bank's final land-development plan at their Tuesday, Oct. 10, regular meeting. 

Alpha Consulting Engineers President John Murphy told supervisors "in conjunction with the redevelopment, we plan on closing the two access points along South Queen and relocating the access (road) along the access drive to the York Value Center."

Murphy explained the project includes demolishing the existing building and constructing a 2,626-square-foot building, three drive-through lanes and 21 parking spaces. Stormwater management, he said, will be primarily underground. 

Township engineer Neil Beach said moving the access roads makes it safer for motorists because of the credit union's close proximity to I-83. 

Murphy said construction bids will be advertised in the coming weeks, and they hope to get started with construction in the spring.
