Lower Frederick Supervisors Like Last Look at Storage Plans

LOWER FREDERICK PA – Plans for gradual expansion of the Lock Tight Storage facility at 309 Big Road received one last review Tuesday (June 28, 2022) from the Lower Frederick Board of Supervisors during its workshop session. Supervisors indicated they could grant final approval to proceed during their general meeting July 5 at the township municipal building on Spring Mount Road.

Lock Tight storage units currently occupy 5.2 acres of the Zieglerville property (above left). The family owned-and-operated company is looking to expand over time onto a portion of an adjacent 43-acre parcel (above right), township engineering representative Carol A. Schuehler, PE, of Value Engineering Inc. explained.

Each of seven structures planned for the expansion would be built on demand as needed, business co-owner Richard Black told supervisors. The order of their construction has not yet been determined, he said. However, installation of its storm water management system would be an “early” priority, Schuehler said in response to board questions.

The company also operates a similar facility in Bally.

Township solicitor Peter Nelson said he would prepare the supervisors’ final approval resolution to be adopted during the coming meeting. “See you next week!,” board Chair Marla Hexter cheerily told Black.
