Community leaders cut the ribbon Saturday at the new North Penn Commons complex on East Main Street in Lansdale.
It brings the North Penn Y.M.C.A., Advanced Living Communities, Manna on Main Street and The Peak Center under one roof. The vision for the partnership among these four non-profit groups came from another community service organization, The Health Spark Foundation. President Russell Johnson said North Penn commons is a community.
“We invite you all to return here as often as you wish to be part of this community. There are lots of things we have in place already and we are interested in you telling us what else we can do in this facility that you don’t necessarily see today.”
State Senator Bob Mensch said Harrisburg put almost 15 million dollars into the project.
“So Russell Johnson called me and said I have this vision for Lansdale to bring the four units together, it took one visit with Russell for me to realize it was going to happen.”
The commons include 60 apartments for low income seniors managed by Advanced Living Communities. They have already been leased.
