B² Answerline: Excavation work on N. Blue Ribbon

Question ... What is going on with a tract of land along North Blue Ribbon Avenue? I noticed that trees are being torn down.

Submitted by Gazette reader Joanne Lanni

B² answer
...
I called the Lower Paxton Twp. office and was told that five apartment buildings are being constructed on a formerly wooded tract by nonprofit group Volunteers of America of Dauphin County to provide affordable housing for people from the Harrisburg area with disabilities.

The complex will have 15 garden-style apartments, a community room and an on-site manager, said Jim Ingolio, director of mission advancement with Volunteers of America. Construction should be completed sometime next spring.

The township reviewed and approved the development plan during the summer of 2007.

No, Blue Ribbon Avenue is the street that intersects Allentown Blvd. at the new Sheetz store located next to Holy Name of Jesus church campus.

I think all they're doing behind Weis is tearing down the trees to put connect the sidewalk from Weis to the development behind it.

I guess it's not so much trees as it is mostly brush.

Thanks for the details! I can hear the noise from my house and have been detouring to avoid the "work area." It was all a mystery until now.
