2.  Downtown Core Redevelopment Plan
The purpose of the Redevelopment Plan is to serve as the principal tool to guide the revitalization of the Downtown Core Rehabilitation  Area.  The Downtown Core Rehabilitation Area will be reinforced as a compact community of higher density housing types in new or rehabilitated/expanded buildings with ground level retail or office uses, where appropriate, and within walking distance of employment and services, bus routes, recreation spaces, and civic uses.  The Plan identifies three surface lots, two that are publicly owned and one that is privately owned, that would supplement the supply of public parking and serve as a catalyst for economic investment in the construction or expansion of properties in the area.
The Rehabilitation Area that led to the development of this Redevelopment Plan includes the properties between Route 37 and Huddy Park and Robbins Parkway, south of Water Street and between Main Street and Hooper Avenue.  The Plan was adopted by Township Council on February 26, 2019.
