The City of Lancaster’s Municipal Operations Climate Action Plan affirms a renewed commitment to the future of Lancaster City.
The owners of 250 College Avenue brought a rezoning petition to Lancaster City Council committee on August 3, followed by a public reading on August 11, a public hearing on August 27, and a second reading on September 8, leading to the adoption of the rezoning ordinance. The seller, UPMC, has reached agreement with a buyer and principal developer, Washington Place Equities (WPE) and HDC MidAtlantic, Lancaster’s largest local affordable housing developer, as a partner. Next, the developer will study the site ahead of submitting any requests to the City.
