Lehigh Valley Academy Regional Charter School (LVA) is pleased to announce that the Board of Trustees has entered into an agreement of sale for a 55 +/- acre property east of Butztown Road in Bethlehem Township, Northampton County at a cost of about $5.4 million for the purpose of building a new school facility. “This fiscally responsible decision ensures fixed costs for the future and supports LVA’s long term plans,” said Martin Smith, President.
The school, currently located at 1560 Valley Center Parkway in Hanover Township, initially secured an agreement of sale on a 31 acre property in Hanover Township at 5300 Jaindl Blvd. During the due diligence period, the Board of Trustees decided to withdraw from the agreement of sale for the Hanover Township property due to insurmountable zoning issues. The new property does not have these zoning issues, with schools being a by-right use according to Bethlehem Township zoning.
“We are so excited about the opportunity to design and build our K-12 forever home.”said Susan Mauser, CEO. Lehigh Valley Academy is partnering with Alloy 5 for Architectural services, D’Huy Engineering for Project Management, and Terraform Engineering for Land Development.
Upcoming public Facilities Committee meetings are posted on the LVA website.
