Property History: At 11:57PM on 4.17.11, a call came into EMA. Firemen were on the scene for 6 hours, gone for 1.5 hours, and called back for a re-burn. The main building, close to 15,000 square feet, fronting on Route 422 was destroyed, and had to be demolished. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OthnUMkkOk YouTube
In 1947, the arched roof part of the building was constructed as a feedmill for Hershey. In 1951, Aaron Stager expanded the building to the north, east, and west, and added what is now the blue garage on the hill behind what was the main building. An incubator of sorts, many business got their start at this location–The Humane Society Thrift Shop, Arnold Autowerkes, Reigle’s Upholstery, Stoneroads Flowers, Reigle’s Video Store…, and R&J Motors had their glass shop on the east side of the building. The County even had a training program in the east side for many years. Then, in 1974, A&G Automotive needed more room for their parts store, and the north side of the west extension was constructed. At the time of the fire, the Humane Society Thrift Shop was located in the former A&G Automotive Store, and Ray’s Collision occupied what was originally Stager’s Body Shop, Kreider’s Body Shop, then Lebanon Body Shop.
North Lebanon Township Zoning Ordinance:
In review, under the stone on the lot, there is a footprint and foundation of the building destroyed by fire. Since this property predated zoning, this is important to preserve pre-existing multiple commercial uses (802 2, A) and two commercial buildings on the same property. I turned away renters who would have voided these and other exemptions and prior conditions. Also,there is a monitoring well on the site.
Next, I recently I was mandated to install a Knox Box on the blue building.
