Guiding Priorities for a Refocus on the Downtown and Community

In 2015 Borough Council adopted Guiding Priorities for a Refocus on the Downtown and Community.

The following four guiding priorities were identified:

  • Strong Business
  • Beautiful & Safe Spaces
  • Interactive Community
  • Celebrate Elizabethtown

Along with these priorities, a list of deliverables "What the Borough Will Do" and "What are Partners Can Do" were identified.  Many of these deliverables are underway, and a few accomplished!

Working toward the priorities, Elizabethtown Borough partnered with the Elizabethtown Area Chamber of Commerce through an Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for an inventory of properties in the downtown and other deliverables.  The report, Downtown Elizabethtown Market Profile 2016, was presented at the August 2016 Borough Council meeting.
