Carlisle to unveil redevelopment plan

Posted: Updated:

Carlisle Borough will hold a public meeting Monday night to unveil its urban redevelopment plan.

According to borough officials, the plan will create a unified vision for the redevelopment of the northwest quadrant of the borough, including three vacant properties; the former Masland plant, Carlisle Wheel and Tire, and Tyco Electronics.

Officials said the purpose of the meeting is to formally introduce the plan to the community, to publicly introduce representatives from Stromberg/Garrgian who will be overseeing the project, and to provide residents and business owners with an opportunity to learn more about the project and to ask questions.

Carlisle Events owns the former Masland plant. Already, they have crews cleaning up what's left of the building following last summer's fire.  Spokesman Michael Garland said Carlisle Events is hoping to add a hotel, restaurant and small conference center at the location, but wants to hear from the community before setting permanent plans.

"We do want to be able to meet and discuss with everybody so we can get a better feel for what works best for the community, we don't just want to go in with this property, and despite the fact that we own it, we don't want to just do what's best for us, we want to do what's best for everybody," he said.

The meeting will be held at Borough Hall at 7 p.m. 

abc27 News will have a crew at the meeting and will have more information on the project later this evening.
