New Problems for Straban!

We had a comment on the previous post that we felt significant enough to post in the body here.

Here is the quote from a person known as STANDstraban:

Did anyone catch the articles in the Gburg Times just before Thanksgiving re: BIg Dig....Big Secrets Well after a little digging, I found out that Wal-Mart does plan to erect a Supercenter on the Sheler Road/Route 30 site across from Sheetz. Not only Sprawl Mart, but also a Lowe's and other big box stores which total about 500,000 square feet of new retail. The developers, Faison, from North Carolina have quietly requested a zoning hearing board meeting for January 15 to start their plans for this massive development; If any Strabanites believe this will bring too much traffic and other problems, they should contact STANDstraban@gmail.com for more information.
We find this interesting but not surprising, as the preparations have been long underway. The infrastructure of the property, water and sewer lines, and road access have been under construction for many months. It hasn't ever looked like much, but this will likely go up in a hurry.

We hope it is not too late. And we wonder what WalMart has in mind for its current location. Can you imagine, Target and WalMart right next to each other. Its starting to look more and more like Hanover, Lancaster, York, and Carlisle every day.

Question: How many light changes will it take to get through the 30/15 interchange once WalMart and Lowes and Target are in place? And don't forget S&A Homes will be tearing out all those trees on the west side of 15 between 30 and 116 so they can slap up more of their high density housing!
