Stop new development of a Chipotle Grill in Hershey, Pennsylvania


With recent news of a Chipotle Grill coming to the 200 block of West Chocolate Avenue in Hershey, Pennsylvania, residents have gathered opposition. Surrounding towns’ saturation of chain restaurants make residents concerned for the integrity of Hershey. Residents have begun to reflect on what we know as Milton S. Hershey’s vision for the community, and also on what we wish to share as a community – with our families, friends, and visitors. Residents wish to stop wild development of Chocolate Avenue and enact a stricter zoning policy to support small business and preserve buildings of historic value to the community. We urge Derry Township to revise their zoning policy to protect existing buildings of historic presence and also to restrict fast food chains, insuring Hershey’s beauty and character remain.
