Canonsburg council members scheduled an economic development workshop to plan for the borough’s future.
Councilman Eric Chandler, who oversees redevelopment in the borough, said the workshop, at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 24 in the borough building, had been “in the works.”
“I think individuals have been doing things and working toward redevelopment, but no one was on the same page,” he said. “We want to come up with a solid plan for what direction we want to go and what businesses we want to come into the community.”
The purpose of the workshop, Chandler said, is “fact finding and data collection.” He wants to start a conversation to find out “where we are currently and where we want to go.”
He wants to get community leaders on the same page and formulate a plan, whether it be implementing a Main Street program or hiring individuals to oversee programming.
