From the Municipal Briefs in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster. Elizabethtown’s “” Borough Council on Thursday approved a change order to the Community Park amphitheater project to construct a tiered seating area for spectators instead of the current arrangement of having people sit on the grassy hill. The new seating area should allow audiences to view performances more comfortably, adding value to the new stage being built to replace one that was in a flood-prone area.”

The Land Bank’s website if chock full with Columbia property information. But the minutes of the most recent meetings are lacking – none since June despite two meetings announced to be held.

And the Lancaster County Redevelopment Authority has this on its agenda: “Resolution approving a contract with the Lancaster County Land Bank Authority for the expenditure of Community Development Block Grant funds to acquire the residential property at 324 Union St., Columbia.”

Interestingly, at the Redevelopment Authority’s Website, the Land Bank’s meeting minutes from the July and August meetings are posted; this is from the August minutes: “Mr. Justin Eby said that the website will be kept up to date so if members have a question about any of the properties, they can find the most current information there.”
Mr. Justin Eby stated that 839 Blunston Street had just been closed on.”
