Murrysville officials are set to vote this month on a proposal for an AutoZone store on William Penn Highway.

The 7,000-square-foot building would be at 4830 William Penn Highway on a site adjacent to Rite Aid pharmacy, project engineer Carmen DiDiano said.

Plans include sidewalks along Old William Penn Highway and landscaping. Parking is adequate at the site, DiDiano said.

The brick building, he said, is consistent “with the character of the municipality.”

Council may consider plans for a proposed expansion of Storexpress, a self-storage facility at 6335 William Penn Highway. Officials are awaiting information from Storexpress before voting, council President Joan Kearns said.

In other business:

• A contracting company will reconstruct handicapped-accessible ramps at the municipal building along Sardis Road.

• Council on Tuesday approved a contract of $76,625 with Santamaria Landscape and Cement Contractors Inc. for the project.

Work will reconstruct the parking area in front of the municipal building and library, adding ramps.

• Mayor Bob Brooks recognized members of the Westmoreland Conservancy, praising their recent accreditation from the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, a national group.

The 22-year old Conservancy cares for 261 acres of land in Murrysville. Much of the Westmoreland Conservancy's work occurs in Murrysville, Brooks said.

The municipality is also home to more than 1,000 acres of parkland.

“The real key is having trails,” Brooks said, “having ways to walk from one end of the municipality to the other.”
