Gilmore and Associates Creates 3D Model of Overlay District

At the February 2016 Planning Commission meeting, Gilmore and Associates presented a 3D Model of the types of structures the proposed Mixed Use Overlay would allow for.  The Borough would like to thank Gilmore and Associates for their work on this project, which was done free of charge.  Please note this model only shows theoretical uses and does not predict actual future changes to the properties shown.

This Ordinance is currently being discussed for formal review and is scheduled to be advertised for the next meeting of the Planning Commission, which will be Tuesday, March 15th at 7:30PM in Burkart Hall.  For more information about the Planning Commission and its meetings, please click the link below:
