Credit union plans North Huntingdon branch
A McKeesport-based credit union wants to build a branch office along Route 30 in North Huntingdon.
The township planning commission Monday recommended approval of Parkview Community Federal Credit Union's plans to build the branch office at 12260 Route 30. The site is just west of Malts Lane and bordered by Shears Lane in the rear. Parkview owns the property, according to Westmoreland Court records. The 2,200-square-foot office would have a drive-through window and parking in the front and rear of the building, said James Harshman, an engineer on the project and president of Harshman CE Group Inc. of Washington, Pa.
A building on the lot would be razed to make way for the credit union building.
Based on comments from township officials, Harshman said he would make revisions to the plans and have them submitted by the time the township commissioners meet on Thursday. They could approve the site plan at that meeting.
The commission's recommendation is contingent upon Parkview getting approval of its stormwater management plan from the Westmoreland Conservation District and a permit from PennDOT for access to Route 30.
Parkview hopes to start construction this spring and have the building completed in six to eight months.
