1. Lampeter and Willow Street Traditional Village Plan

    West Lampeter Township established a Village Renewal Committee to activate the village centers of Lampeter and Willow Street and then secured funding to prepare a plan to move forward with these efforts. The Village Renewal Committee needed a plan for the two villages that communicated the residents’ aspirations. It was also important that the plan…

  2. Lenni Lenape Park Master Site Plan

    RETTEW prepared the Lenni Lenape Park Master Site Plan for the North Lebanon Township Parks and Recreation Board and Planning Committee. We worked closely with the Parks and Recreation Board and the public to develop the final master plan for the 28-acre site, which includes both passive and active features used in all seasons. RETTEW…

  3. Mary D Fire Company Sports Complex

    To improve the Schuylkill River’s water quality, the Schuylkill Headwaters Association, Inc. (SHA), needed to mitigate the Mary D mine discharge, but the adjacent Mary D Ball Field was the only viable location to create wetlands required for the planned passive abandoned mine drainage treatment system. Determined to improve the area’s waterways but unwilling to…

  4. Municipal Storm Sewer System Maintenance and Management Programs

    Federal regulations require municipalities to obtain permits, as well as develop and implement a program to manage stormwater within their municipality. The scope of program requirements result in budgetary strains and time crunches for many municipalities, which are then left to determine how to cost-effectively manage their stormwater to meet state and federal requirements. RETTEW…

  5. Palmyra Borough Sinkhole

    A major break in an 8-inch water main caused a geyser, which flowed for nearly six hours before the main was shut down. A large sinkhole developed as a result of the excess water, causing a third of a major traffic intersection to collapse and, consequently, to be closed. In addition the underground utilities in…

  6. Palmyra IW-9 Injection Well Replacement

    The project area in the 900 block of Cherry Street in Palmyra Borough has suffered from sinkholes on a regular basis for more than 50 years. Stormwater naturally drains to the location because of its low elevation, and because of flooding problems, the Borough constructed a stormwater injection well in the late 1960s. For the…

  7. Conowingo TMDL Implementation Planning and Watershed Implementation

    The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) lists the Conowingo Creek Watershed as an impaired stream. Because the Conowingo is historically a coldwater fishery and at one time supported a viable trout fishery, the Donegal Chapter of Trout Unlimited (DTU) was interested in its restoration. RETTEW worked closely with DTU to secure grant funding…

  8. Palmyra Stormwater Forebay and Wetlands Design

    Railroad Street in the northern section of Palmyra Borough had ongoing flooding issues and required strong stormwater management to provide solutions. However, the Borough needed to secure funding in order to move the project forward. As the Borough Engineer, RETTEW assisted the client in securing Growing Greener grants for design and construction of the forebay…

  9. Lancaster Police Station Site Development

    The Lancaster City Bureau of Police outgrew its headquarters facility and needed a new state-of-the-art, four-story, 60,000-SF police station. In addition to housing offices for patrol and criminal investigation units, this highly specialized facility would need to accommodate investigation laboratories, a round-the-clock communications center, and a live ammunition firing range. Partnering with an architect nationally…

  10. Paxtang Borough Zoning Ordinance

    Paxtang Borough needed a new zoning ordinance and map that would implement recommendations from the recently adopted mini-comprehensive plan and downtown improvements plan; encourage adaptive reuse, replacement, infill, and redevelopment of vacant and underutilized properties and structures within the downtown and nearby neighborhoods; and ensure consistency with and incorporate recent changes in the Pennsylvania Municipal…
