NEWVILLE, PA-The Cumberland County Redevelopment Authority has obtained a grant of $460,000 for the redevelopment and conversion of the Farmer’s National Bank building and two adjoining buildings into a mixed-use project containing 11 new rental apartments with ground-floor retail. The total cost is estimated at $1.7 million. The funding is from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and is part of Gov. Ed Rendell’s pledge to provide grants to help revitalize the state’s smaller and mid-sized communities. According to the 2000 census, Newville has a population of about 1,400. Carlisle-based 3-T Investors is the developer of the project. It involves gutting all three three-story buildings along One Big Spring Ave., connecting the structures and renovating them inside and out. “Like many communities with a developing downtown, Newville is producing creative ways to draw both businesses and people back to the borough,” says Kenneth Klothen, deputy secretary of DCED. “By creating a battery of programs and investing in neighborhoods across the state, we can make a difference in both the short- and long-term growth of a community, municipality and region.” This mixed-use project, Klothen says, “has the potential to further stimulate the borough’s economic base and provide the necessary infrastructure that will encourage further growth in the downtown.” Since January 2003, the state has invested in 318 community revitalization projects, and Cumberland County alone has received more than $114 million in state funding. Klothen contends that the investment in this county have helped lower the unemployment rate from 4.2% to its current 3%.
