Housing developments are springing up all over York County, and one of the most visible developers is Paul Jusseaume of Boccaccio Homes.
Jusseaume, 28, studied art and architecture in Europe before settling down in York. He named his company after the 14th-century Italian writer and artist.
His latest endeavor with partner Jeff Ellis is the Estates at Glenmoor, 50 homes going up on Old Pinckney Road.
To jump-start interest in the subdivision, Jusseaume partnered with Realtors Robin King, Heather Lamp and Kippen Lovelace in a “Taste of York.”

About 100 York County Realtors turned out Thursday for the buffet tasting, which featured signature dishes and desserts from five York County restaurants.
“We just thought it would be a unique way to introduce the essence of York to all the county Realtors,” Lamp said. “York is such an incredibly fast-growing area.”
But don't worry – Realtors aren't the only ones having fun. The public is invited to an open-house festival next Sunday, 2-4 p.m. at the development.
There will be carriage rides, Ron's barbecue, a moonwalk and children's activities. And those restaurants that participated in the “Taste of York”? They've donated gift certificates to be raffled to some lucky visitors.
To get to the festival, head south on U.S. 321 out of York. Turn right on Old Pinckney Road, and Glenmoor is about two miles on your right.
From 9 a.m. Friday, when the antiques show begins, until 5 p.m. Saturday, when the vendors shut down and the final historic automobile hits the road, Summerfest will be a blast.
As many as 50,000 people come to York for Summerfest, drawn by the crafts, food, classic car show, art competition and sale, model-airplane fly-in, moonlight bike ride, live music and more.
