The Hanover Township Board of Supervisors approved a preliminary land development plan for an upscale health and wellness center during Tuesday night's meeting.
The proposed project will go on a 14-acre lot at 4145 Airport Road in the Northampton County township. The lot had been purchased by Dr. Steven Mortazavi. The doctor, who was present during the meeting, asked supervisors if the township would be willing to waive traffic impact fees on the project. Mortazavi made the case predicated upon his calculation that he was doing "70 percent" of the road improvements associated with the project.
Supervisor Stephen Salvesen said that was not standard practice and supervisors would not be so inclined.
"Sorry," added Vice Chairman Mark Tanczos.
Construction of the two-story, 52,000-square-foot building is expected to get underway once additional permits are acquired.
In other business, supervisors authorized the advertisements of two conditional use hearings. One hearing involves a proposed day care center relocation at 3355 High Point Boulevard, and the second will focus on the installation of solar panels at a property located at 2086 Quail Creek Road.
Supervisors also appointed Gregory Gray as the township's sewage enforcement officer.
Chairman John Diacogiannis was absent from Tuesday night's meeting.
