Living Hope Church’s new facility design required coordination with PA DEP and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to permit construction activities adjacent to the existing stream channel and wetlands. The proposed utility extensions required extensive coordination with the local sewer authority, water company, and PennDOT to obtain the necessary approvals. Additional challenges included the sight distances along Schoolhouse Road, a PennDOT maintained roadway. Due to inadequate sight distances, the proposed driveway location was relocated to cross over lands owned by two electric utility companies. In order to secure the necessary easements and permits, SDC assisted the Church with coordination to purchase additional parcels from the electric utility companies and provided easements for the electric infrastructure. The Church now has a total acreage of 25.7 acres to develop in phases as the congregation grows.
