projects progress in Columbia and Lititz

lnp market to open

In today’s LNP – Always Lancaster | Theres’ a page three article about the impending re-opening of the Columbia Historic Market House that’ll be operated by Catholic Health Initiatives St. Joseph Children’s Health.

This is a Columbia news, views & reviews post from last Wednesday:

Columbia Market House | At last night’s Borough Council meeting, the councillors voted in a unanimous manner to enter into an agreement to have its Historic Market House managed by Catholic Health Initiatives. The details of that agreement are shown in a 12-page document in the meeting packet posted at the Borough Website.

CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health has also spawned this initiative: Healthy Columbia which features activities and programs that will “address community needs negatively impacting the health and well-being of residents and the Borough. Healthy Columbia programming is designed to provide the opportunities and the supports necessary to create a healthy and thriving community.”

Not found … | According to that borough’s Website, there is no revolving loan program in Lititz Borough. BUT … it’s not a friendly, nor fully transparent, website; we could not find meeting agendas nor minutes nor the annual budget. It’s kind of curious that there appears to be no current facebook page — nor any other social media site. Yet the Lititz Police Department maintains a friendly facebook page.


  1. Thanks for sharing the good news that CHI Healthy Columbia is doing. I and the rest of the Healthy Columbia board appreciate it. Many great things happening in Columbia and we are excited to be part of it.

    • Appreciate your observation, Don. We’ll keep trying to publish items of interest; pertinence and relevance about Columbia and the surrounding area.
