In early July of 2020 Mrs. Alma W. Oyer contacted the Police Chief and asked if we were interested in receiving a 3.27-acre tract of land located in Rouzerville at 11898 Buchanan Trail East.  This is the residue of a property that Mrs. Oyer and her late husband, Nickson W. Oyer had owned for many years. The Oyer family had constructed their Construction Company’s office, W. R. Oyer, Inc. on part of the property and constructed some commercial rental buildings on the remainder.  On July 29th of 2020 Mrs. Oyer graciously donated the property to the Washington Township Supervisors to construct an Office Facility. 

A new facility has been in the focus of the Supervisors for many years and in 2004, the Board of Supervisors decided to construct a temporary office facility at their property at 13013 Welty Road. 

The Supervisors have contracted with Newcomer Associates in Chambersburg, PA to provide conceptual drawings for the facility.  Preliminary drawings are available below.

At this time the preliminary plans call for a 12,000 square foot office building that will house the Police Department and Administrative Offices including a public meeting room, the Planning & Zoning Department, the Code Enforcement Officer, Building Inspector and the Tax Office.

Start of construction is undetermined at this time but the hope would be to start in the spring of 2022.

 The property is large enough to house the Public Works Road Department and is considered for construction later.
