Special Request From Our Neighbors at YMCA Camp Shand
Our friends at YMCA Camp Shand have asked that no vehicles trespass on their property. Someone has been driving ATVs and snow mobiles from Spring Hill Acres across their property. There has been damage to the ball field and other areas. Please refrain from crossing YMCA property with vehicles except in the case of an emergency. The road from 322 to Camp Shand is a private drive. It's not a public road. If you have any questions about where it's okay to ride or walk, feel free to contact Chris Smith, the YMCA Camp Shand Director, or Scott Mailen, the YMCA Camp Shand Program Director, at 717-272-8001. You can also contact Philip Rissler, the SHAHA president, at 269-9335 with any questions.
Note: We do have the legal right to enter and exit Spring Hill Acres and use the Camp Shand road to and from 322 in the case of an emergency. Our right-of-way explicitely states that the right-of-way is for "use solely as an emergency access road, and for no other purpose."
the same lines, please note that Google Maps incorrectly shows
the location of the State Game Lands. There is no access from Spring
Hill Acres to the State Game Lands without crossing private property.

Acres and some of

were again the main topic of the fall meeting.
Spring Hill Acres Homeowners' Association has title to the
emergency exit lot at the end of Hickory Drive. We're paying the
property taxes, which we contested after the reassessment. The county
accepted our argument that the lot should not be considered a buildable
lot and is not comparable to other lots
in Spring Hill Acres. The taxes were reduced to less than $200 per
