The PA state government under Governor Wolf has officially decided to begin providing a $3 million redevelopment grant through the DCED to redevelop 15 Harrisburg Redevelopment Authority properties and one privately owned property into 50 new, high quality affordable apartments in the Allison Hill section of Harrisburg city. There will also be commercial space on the first floors.

The Harrisburg Housing Authority will tear down some existing structures and then construct three new buildings: one 26-unit, one 21-unit, and one 3-unit. The funds will also be used to clean up an illegal dumping ground and to then construct an overlook and a pedestrian bridge at the dead-end of Derry Street, to server as a connector into the downtown area. This project will be located close to the recently-added nearby Harrisburg Police Department sub-station.

The "Mulder Square Project" is named after the two adjoining streets of Mulberry and Derry Streets. Work on the project can begin as early as early 2017.

While I find it interesting that this news piece/announcement from the government was released only a few days before November 8, politics aside, do you think this project will be a step in the right direction to help revitalize this section of the Allison Hill neighborhood? Do you think this project could be the start of a new wave of redevelopment in the area? Or, do you think the project will only affect the immediate area and maybe a few surrounding blocks, and really not spread any lasting, long-term benefits? Does anyone know if these types of redevelopment grants common, and how do they usually turn out?

That's the story *they* tell you. The truth is out there!

(wonder if, in some twisted example of viral psychology, it could be promoted as a pilgrimage site for X-Files fans)

I don't think the PTB in PA have the creativity to come up with that.
