Council To Consider Just One Vision For Stocking Works II

Developer Allan Smith initially submitted two plans – Plan A and Plan B -- however council will consider just one of those during the Conditional Use Hearing set for Dec. 7.

A Conditional Use Hearing slated for the proposed Stocking Works II mixed-use development will take into consideration just one proposal for the former Stockburger Chevrolet site.

Developer Allan Smith – Plan A and Plan B -- however council will consider just one of those during the Conditional Use Hearing set for Dec. 7.

Plan A, the one that will be reviewed next month, would utilize just the approximately six acres that comprise the former Stockburger Chevrolet site and the Sedia property on Penn and State streets. The mixed-use development would feature residential, retail and a two-deck parking structure.

Plan B is similar to the one presented informally to Borough Council in May. It includes the development of two additional acres -- the State Store property plus the adjacent municipal lot – and features additional civic amenities such as a creek walk, a public gathering space and an amphitheatre.

Plan B won’t be considered next month because Smith doesn’t own the one-acre municipal parking lot site.  Smith, who owns the State Store property, was the former owner of the municipal lot property but donated it to the borough several years ago

The Conditional Use Hearing will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. at the
