On Monday July 9th a ground breaking event was held for the Schoolhouse Hill Apartments housing development in Mehoopany. The development is designed to house senior citizens aged 62 and over, who live within 60% of the county average. The plans include 18 one-bedroom units, 2 two-bedroom units, and a community center. The development is a collaboration between Trehab and Monarch Development Group out of Camp Hill. It is part of a continuing plan to address the housing needs of the areas in which Trehab operates.
Present at the ground breaking were Trehab's Executive Director Dennis Phelps, Monarch's Director of Development Laura Northup, Rob Grimm of Grimm Construction (the development's general contractor), Mehoopany Township Secretary Emily Krafjack, Wyoming County Commissioner Judy Mead, Representative Sandra Major, and Senator Lisa Baker, among others.
