Conceptual redevelopment master plan of a highly visible and accessible commercial/industrial corridor along I-86. Project prepared to give neighboring NY/PA communities the potential to tap tourism and travel markets, and services to local commuting public, in a manner that preserves visual character and enhances the tax base.
Nearly 17acres of relatively inaccessible land in a congested area was made available through design and planning strategies. Concept plans and simulations developed to aid in visualizing the recommendations.
Driving the process was the need for Leprino Foods Inc. to expand their facilities and consume a local connecting road. Road ultimately was realigned with future greenway easement and park-and-ride component.
Uniformity of zoning regulations along the boundary between two communities was encouraged. Numerous public meetings were facilitated to gain public trrust and consensus.
Seven broader areas of influence were also reviewed with recommendations made to encourage revitalization.
