Rental units development

A land development plan involving rental units near Meeting House Heights in Carlisle Borough has been withdrawn by the developer.

A developer is seeking special exceptions that could bring 120 garden apartments to Carlisle's west end just off of Meeting House Springs Road.

The borough's zoning hearing board will meet at 6:30 p.m. May 2 at the borough building, 53 W. South St., to hear testimony on the request by David Shaool.

If approved, the apartments would be built on vacant land west of Princeton Drive and Sussex Drive. The lot is a residual lot for the Chesterfield subdivision.

The land is zoned R-2 Medium Density Residential, which requires special exception use for garden apartments.

Shaool also has asked for a reduction in the number of required off-street parking spaces.

The request is also on the agenda for the borough's planning commission at its meeting to be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at borough hall. The commission will not be looking at a land development plan. Rather, the request before it is part of the circulation requirements for the zoning hearing.
