After a detailed and thoughtful exploration of construction viability, Lancaster Lebanon Habitat for Humanity has decided against building homes on the Juniata Street property located in Lancaster’s southeast neighborhood.
While our community’s need for affordable homes is great, the increasing costs associated with the proposed build and the neighborhood’s shared concerns about the land development led us to conclude that home building on this property is not feasible. In lieu of this project, our team will work to expand our impact in other areas of Lancaster and Lebanon Counties through developing new and existing properties.
The History of the Former Plan
Lancaster Lebanon Habitat had developed a land-use plan for Juniata, proposing to the City of Lancaster 36 new owner-occupied homes. This design was first shared with neighborhood residents on June 10, 2020. The plan incorporated comments and feedback from Visioning Sessions held in July 2019 and July 2020, where various community stakeholders expressed a desire to emphasize open/green/recreational space, off-street parking, and have homes that will be owner occupied for years to come.
