Medical Mission Sisters  Property  Being Developed -   8400 Pine Rd
  Total  549 Units  - Part in Philadelphia and Part in Abington

 

    THE NUTSHELL The Medical Mission Sisters' 136-acre property sits on Pine Road in both Abington (41 acres) and Philadelphia (95 acres). There are several properties on the site, but the property was  less than 20 percent covered in 2012  when Abington approved the construction of 61 new apartments on part of the property  which had several other  existing buildings . (This may be the part called Mission Green) In late 2020 or early 2021 we learned of a proposal to develop this property that is in both Philadelphia and Abington . It was proposed to have  135 independent living units/80 assisted living memory care units/216 apartment units/118 carriage home units for a total of 549 units.  The proposal came from Aquinas builders (Pres. Len Poncia )   who said they would preserve the medical Mission sisters headquarters, the cemetery, the boathouse and some of the landscaping. This historic barn and other buildings would be removed.  The Medical Mission Sisters had a worldwide mission helping refugees, immigrants, trafficking victims, etc.. 

   NEXT MEETING    :     FOX CHASE HOMEOWNERS ASSOC  (google it )  meeting is on 11/10 at 7:30PM at the Ludenslager VA Post on Oxford Ave. in Fox Chase.

Abington Township, with John Spiegelman in charge, revamped the entire Township website at the end of 2015 and broke all the links to the information we had archived on this site for you.   In 2017, Manager Richard Manfredi arrived and assigned someone not qualified to redo the entire website again. They not only broke all archived links we had reinstated, but made everything as impossible to find as they could. Nearly all of our comments and recommedations to fix the Township website have been wholly ignored.

So we do need volunteers to work together helping the Township create a site that is functional and accessible.  We will be reinstating links as we find them....if the data is still available. So... please let us know if you find a broken link. Send us the URL of the link  and the name of the page it is on, and if we can, we'll reinstate it.
Thanks for the help.
