LIMERICK TOWNSHIP, PA — Two weeks after his revamped plan for a development featuring four-story buildings and higher densities met strong opposition from the township officials, Mark Quigley appears to have found a happy compromise.

“I appreciate you looking at it again,” Supervisor Kara Shuler said after Quigley presented his new plan at the July 16 supervisors’ meeting.

“I have to really commend you for the way you did this,” said supervisors’ Chairman Joseph St. Pedro.  “You listened to us and you went back (and worked on it) and came back and presented to us … I have no problems with this.”

York, PA - The sawdust floated down like late-winter snow, but officials said by summer the city will have more than two dozen state-of-the-art housing units and a bright new view along South George Street.

George Street Commons, a collaborative effort between the City of York, the Y Community Development Corporation and Ohio-based developer PIRHL is nearing completion, according to Kevin Schreiber, the city’s community and economic development director.

Residents could begin to move in to part of the $10 million, 28-unit site along East College Avenue as early as April, he said.  It should be completed by August.

“This is a really strong, good city project, a good, mixed-use development,” he said, walking the muddy construction site on Friday.  “There’s a lot here we’re excited about.”
