Description of Service
The Elm Street Plan is based upon a need to revitalize selected neighborhood properties and infrastructure to the south and east of the downtown business district of Chambersburg; emphasis on key pedestrian linkage corridors entering and leaving the central corps of the Borough of Chambersburg. The primary purpose of the Elm Street Plan is to prevent further neighborhood decline by addressing aging and deteriorated housing stock; reverse high rental to owner ratios; correct deteriorated curbs and sidewalks; encourage construction of affordable housing; apply funding to renovate owner occupied residences; eliminate blighted and unsafe conditions in the interest of promoting a visible philosophy of “Clean, Safe and Green”; thereby improving linkages to the downtown business district.
