CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Consultants hired to map out a plan for using 1,500 acres of Letterkenny Army Depot land being donated to Franklin County, Pa., have offered a glimpse of suggested uses for the property.
Although it could take up to 30 years for all plans to reach fruition, a business center could be ready to house its first tenants by next year, said said John H. Alschuler, president of the consulting firm hired by the Franklin County Reuse Committee.
The business center possibly could be called New Century Business Park, he said.
Alschuler said a final recommendation for use of the property will be made to the community in March.
It will take a generation to fully convert the base into a facility with space for businesses providing more than 10,000 jobs, Alschuler said.
