Updates on good things coming to the Village....
Urban Promise is moving their high school to the newly purchased 2223 N. Market Street. Renovations will be complete in time for the 2019/2020 school year.
In addition, the Village of St. John is slated to open in June.
Be on the look out for the "face lift" that Brandywine Mills Plaza will undergo this spring. Concrete work and a mural are on the agenda. This project is being made possible due to the support of Delaware State Senator Darius Brown.
Reminiscent of Boathouse row in Philadelphia, Masley's glove factory is due to add to the lights on the Brandywine.
