    • Handling the Heat: Animal Safety & High Temperatures
      The heat index soared this weekend, and that naturally raises questions about safety—for both our costumed interpreters and animals. Besides plenty of water, breaks, and shade, Coach & Livestock utilizes a heat index policy for working animals.  Cattle—like dogs—cannot sweat, so they are removed from work when the heat index reaches 95°.  Horses can swea […]

New subdivision with 222 homes near Water Country approved

After offering York County more than $600,000 to address school capacity issues, Whittaker’s Mill will join King’s Creek and the Marquis in Upper York County.

The York County Board of Supervisors voted 4 to 1 — with Supervisor Walter Zaremba opposing — on Tuesday night to approve Whittaker’s Mill, a 222-home, 77-acre residential development on Penniman and Winchester roads near the intersection of Route 199 and Interstate 64.

Whittaker’s Mill consists of 114 single-family homes and up to 108 townhouse units with four park areas, a clubhouse, a swimming pool and community garden plots. It touches Cheatham Annex and an industrial property to the west.

Whittaker’s Mill was designed by Brandon Currence Architects who were involved in the planning for a number of communities in the area including Port Warwick, Nelsons Grant, Church Square and many others. The design for Whittakers Mill combines the efficiency and in town feel of a town home community oriented toward an open square at the front of the community. ( similar to Port Warwick). In the back of the community will be traditional single family lots as well as larger estate sized lots with dramatic wooded ravine views.

The town square and neighborhood clubhouse will provide focal points for community social events. Both will enjoy a view of the largest pond in the neighborhood.

The development is located in the York County attendance zones for Magruder Elementary, Queens Lake Middle, and Bruton High Schools. Based on the number of homes proposed planning staff estimate that the proposed development can be expected to generate up to 101 school students – 45 at Magruder Elementary School, 24 at Queens Lake Middle School, and 32 at Bruton High School
