The township commissioners could vote Wednesday on the new 312,000-square-foot facility for FedEx Ground to be built on Fulling Mill Road, said Brenda Wick, the township planning and zoning director. The planning commission has recommended approval for the facility that is adjacent to FedEx’s Freight facility on North Union Street.
FedEx could employ up to 250 people at the site and developers are ready to begin construction as soon as its approved, Wick said.
