Planning commissioners approved a revised site plan.
A building addition is being planned for Bill Gray Volvo in McMurray. The Peters Township Planning Commission approved the revised site plan Thursday night.

"A great event geared toward safety and families, you do not need to be in the market for a car or even own a Volvo," said Kirsten McGrath of Bill Gray Volvo. "The car seat inspectors are all from the fire department and recommend you call ahead to make an appointment so you don't have to wait long while you're there.
