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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
