A new Chick-fil-A restaurant is being planned for Camp Hill borough in Pennsylvania, United States. The restaurant is to be constructed at the juncture of 32nd and Chestnut streets in the Camp Hill borough. The 5000 square foot building for the restaurant is to be built on about 1.4 acres of land. Around 6 buildings would be demolished to allow the construction of the proposed restaurant. That includes one building across an alley near the eastern end of the site. The site is owned by the developer, consolidated properties, of Wormleysburg.
Point’s to Remember While Making Chick-Fil-A Restaurant:
The residents of in Camp Hill borough are definitely not happy with the proposed plan. If constructed the entrances and exits to the restaurant could be off Chestnut street. Nearby alleyways could also be used. One of the said alleys expanses south from chestnut to Bramar road. The other stretches east from the planned construction site of the 31st street. Both alleys border residential neighborhoods. These alleys are to be used by the vehicles in order to gain excess and leaving the restaurant.

Adding to the traffic
Local parents are worried that the restaurant traffic could threat the playing children and pedestrians. Parents are worried for their children contending that the local schools in the district do not have bus services in that area so many students walk to school using the path and making a restaurant around this area would add to the traffic and will be dangerous for the children. Apart from this, the residents are concerned about the noise, litter, congestion, and pollution that will be caused when the construction work for the restaurant begins. The residents are concerned that the streets in that area are already loaded with traffic every now and then, having a Chick-fil-A restaurant nearby would just add to the problem. The developers on Thursday called in the residents for a public meeting to discuss the matter in detail. In this meeting, the residents voiced their concerns in detail.
Amidst the heavy criticism of the proposed plan, the developers have postponed their meeting with the Camp Hill Planning Commission in which they were supposed to get the approval of their plan. The company is going to ‘evaluate’ its plan again before presenting it to the Camp Hill Planning Commission.
