Quakertown triangle lot revitalization project stalls

QUAKERTOWN, Pa. - Quakertown borough bought back the eyesore Triangle Park lot after a revitalization project stalled.

A developer that was supposed to put a three-story building on the site pulled out of the project.

City Council unanimously agreed to buy it back for $250,000, the same amount for which they sold it to the developer.

The borough originally received the money three years ago from the state's Redevelopment Assistance Capital program, specifically for the revitalization of the triangle.

The borough manager said he is working with Harrisburg now to keep the grant and apply it to another redevelopment project.
