Ullman: $1.5 million in state funds awarded to Doylestown Borough develop a new municipal complex

DOYLESTOWN, May 2 –Doylestown Borough will receive $1.5 million in Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program funds to acquire and redevelop an existing PennDOT maintenance facility in to a new municipal complex, state Rep. Wendy Ullman announced today.

Ullman strongly recommended the project for state funding support. The funds will be used to transform the existing 6.4-acre PennDOT Maintenance Facility, with frontage on N. Broad and Doyle streets, in Doylestown Borough, into a new municipal complex, to include: a new Doylestown Borough Hall, Central Bucks Regional Police Department headquarters and a new municipal park.

“I want to thank Governor Wolf releasing these funds to such a deserving project,” Ullman said.  “It’s critical that our state government participates in municipal projects such as these so the project’s entire financial cost doesn’t lie with local taxpayers. The RACP funds will help make Doylestown Borough and Central Bucks a safer place to live.”

The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) is a Commonwealth grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational, and historical improvement projects. RACP projects are authorized in the Redevelopment Assistance section of a Capital Budget Itemization Act, have a regional or multi-jurisdictional impact, and generate substantial increases or maintain current levels of employment, tax revenues, or other measures of economic activity. RACP projects are state-funded projects that cannot obtain primary funding under other state programs.
