QUAKERTOWN, Pa. - Bucks County officials say a multi-million dollar re-development project could bring dozens of new jobs to the area.
Officials unveiled plans to re-purpose a vacant textile mill on Fifth Street in Quakertown Tuesday.
The project is the first to use the county's "Bucks-to-Invest" loan program created earlier this year to spur economic development.
New companies--including a software business--will move into the space when it's done.
Officials say the project will be finished sometime in 2014.
