Last night the Carlisle Urban Redevelopment Planners unveiled their rough draft to borough council.  West Side Neighbors were at every session open to the public this week and the process was smooth and the outcome looks quite promising.  They presented a powerpoint presentation with possible options for each of the plots but since it isn’t posted yet, we will just post the images taken from the screens last night.  (sorry if some are fuzzy)

IAC site now called Carlisle Springs - Village Center.  Includes national retailer or large grocery, hotel, residential, small retail.

Overall, it did compile much of what was said at the other presentations but in much condensed form.  Overall, they are recommending a mix of retail including at least one grocery store plus a national retailer.  Along with that, housing including loft style flats and senior living.  Their final plan won’t be ready until May so these images will have to hold you over until then.  The week was very productive and it looks like we are moving in a good direction so far.

  1. I agree. A Trader Joe’s would not only help prevent people from leaving Carlisle to shop out of town (Wegman’s) but bring people from out of town to Carlisle b/c we would have the only one in the area.

  2. I’d love to see a drop-in center for use by teenagers to play basketball, do homework, social gathering place; and to be used by senior citizens, churches at low to no cost.
