CDR buys Historic Triangle Building

YORK-Childhood Development Resources (CDR) plans to relocate to The Historic Triangle Messmer Community Services Building on Waller Mill Road in York County.

CDR recently reached an agreement to acquire control of the building, which currently houses numerous local non-profit organizations.

CDR Executive Director Paul Scott said the move will allow CDR to serve its families and early childhood professionals more efficiently. The new building will be big enough to hold all of CDR’s programs, which are currently at five different locations within the area.

The Historic Triangle Building is also located on the WATA bus route, which will give families, staff, and volunteers easier access to on-site services.

CDR had been searching for a site to accommodate all of its programs under one roof.  Last year, the organization received a donation from Dr. Alex Kaz and the Kaz Family Foundation of Williamsburg to help fund the purchase.

As part of the plan, FISH will remain in the Historic Triangle Building, while arrangements are being made with other existing tenants to relocate. Renovations to the building are expected to be completed in June.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
