The Hershey Center for Applied Research is a research park for the 21st Century – environmentally responsible, human oriented and aesthetically pleasing.
Located along Route 322 and Bullfrog Valley Road, it has a special responsibility to represent the community as the gateway to Hershey, Pennsylvania.
The purpose of these Guidelines for Development is to provide context for making important decisions about future phases of build-out and for the ongoing management of the Center. They address both the general uses allowed within the Center and the site design - including lighting, signage and parking, building size and siting, organization of building groups into Courts and building concerns such as energy efficiency and the use of sustainable building materials. They are intended to guide development and management rather than to require a particular aesthetic. Innovation and creativity are encouraged. All design plans should be consistent with Derry Township zoning and land development ordinances.
