Borough Seeks To Reclaim & ReDevelop Southgate Shopping Center

Borough of Chambersburg is working with the Elm Street Advisory Council to reclaim and redevelop the Southgate Shopping Center into a mixed-use residential neighborhood.

The goal of the project, known as the Southgate Shopping Center Redevelopment Initiative, is to pay respect to the families that were displaced in 1962, when the shopping center was built, by creating a new sustainable neighborhood that promotes a mixture of uses to include housing, employment, retail and business services into the Elm Street Neighborhood.

A project website has been established to present information, and seek feedback, in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole:

Please visit the website to learn more about the project, participate in a community outreach meeting and to take an online survey.
