first_imgBorough of Carlisle Urges the Legislature to Support Gov. Wolf’s Aggressive Infrastructure Plan, Restore Pennsylvania Press Release,  Restore Pennsylvania Harrisburg, PA – The Borough of Carlisle is the latest Pennsylvania municipality to pass a resolution formally calling for the state legislature to support Restore Pennsylvania, Governor Wolf’s aggressive infrastructure investment plan.“My colleagues and I understand the impediments that municipalities, like Carlisle, often face to provide needed services, which address quality of life issues effectively and efficiently with limited available revenue sources,” said Carlisle Mayor Tim Scott. “The Restore Pennsylvania initiative and its sensible funding mechanism are means to meet the ever-growing needs of Pennsylvania communities, large and small alike.”Restore Pennsylvania will inject $4.5 billion over the next four years in significant, high-impact projects selected by local officials who are best situated to determine need. In the Borough of Carlisle, potential projects include flood prevention and recovery, blight remediation, brownfield redevelopment, green space creation, and broadband access expansion.“As with many of Pennsylvania’s historic communities, Carlisle is coping with changes in industry and population shifts. Restore Pennsylvania could provide the support the borough is looking for to modify infrastructure to meet today’s needs,” said Gov. Wolf. “It’s time for us to reinvest in our communities to make them competitive in the modern economy.”Borough officials made note of the support Restore Pennsylvania could provide to the Carlisle Urban Redevelopment Plan, a comprehensive strategy to redevelop industrial sites and reactivate neighborhoods. Restore Pennsylvania could provide assistance to areas outlined in the plan, including developing green infrastructure like public parks and bicycle routes, minimizing stream runoff to prevent flooding, and removing contaminants at brownfield sites.Restore Pennsylvania is a statewide plan to aggressively address the commonwealth’s vital infrastructure needs. Funded through a commonsense severance tax that the Independent Fiscal Office has determined will be primarily paid for by out-of-state residents, Restore Pennsylvania is the only plan that will help make Pennsylvania a leader in the 21st century.View the full Restore Pennsylvania plan.
