All eyes on Middletown

Think the people in Middletown are interested in what is going to happen at the former Franklin Mint site?

More than 500 residents packed into the auditorium at Penncrest High last night for the first formal public hearing on the proposal to build the “walkable community” – including more than 1,200 residences, as well as retail and office space and a 225-room hotel.

You can read Rose Quinn’s detailed account of the meeting here.
We also have video from the meeting posted on the website.

There is no doubt in my mind that this is one of the biggest development issues in recent years in the county.

And for that reason I am hoping to make it the centerpiece of a new online program we are calling “Live from the Newsroom.” I’ll have more details on how you can take part later this week.

For now, start thinking about what you’d like to ask both the developers, and the community groups who oppose what they refer to as “the city.”

It’s coming soon to Stay tuned.
