The Marcellus shale activity in the County has sparked interest in development that hasn’t been seen in some time resulting in developers seeking buildable sites for various types of projects. In addition to assisting commercial and residential developers with site location, acquisition and preparation, RACG has created an Acquisition, Rehab and Resale Program to assist the County with the development/redevelopment of its underutilized properties and the remediation of blighted properties. This program is sourced by the County’s 26 municipalities identifying blighted properties in their communities as well as RACG identifying vacant/abandoned/underutilized properties through foreclosures, sheriff sales and the County tax repository. The goals of this program are to:
Increase/improve the housing stock within the County
Provide home ownership opportunities for individuals and families
Convert houses not currently contributing to the tax base to tax base contributors
In conjunction with the County Commissioner’s Housing Task Force, RACG is committed to enhancing the quality of life for all of the County’s residents by advancing housing development and potential redevelopment sites across the County. Housing development includes senior housing, market rate housing, affordable housing, low income and special needs housing.
