New Wawa and Chick-fil-a locations, plus 16 other projects proposed for central Pa.


During the month of June, developers proposed new restaurants, housing developments, early learning centers, warehouses, a Wawa and a grocery store in Cumberland and Dauphin counties.

It is important to note that not all plans come to fruition and even those that do could sometimes take years before a shovel is placed in the ground.

That being said, here is a look at some of the projects — not all — for Cumberland and Dauphin that were proposed to local officials in June or before that:
