Lemoyne Middle School Redevelopment Project



RGS Associates, in partnership with the Real Estate Collaborative (REC) LMS, LLC, has concluded a public engagement process for the redevelopment efforts at the former Lemoyne Middle School, a three acre site located at 701 Market Street in the Borough of Lemoyne.

The public engagement process included two public meetings and a survey to allow the community to provide their comments, concerns and preferences about the project. Over 50 individuals attended each of the meetings, and over 230 people filled out the survey.

Thank you to all those who filled out the Lemoyne Middle School Redevelopment survey and attended the public meetings on July 16, 2018 and August 20, 2018.

At the first public meeting RGS’ land planning team presented an overview of the site, engaged in group discussions and gathered public sentiment about the project.
