Chester County officials won't expound on exactly what "Project 1233" is but they are moving on it very quickly.
The project was discussed at Monday's regular meeting of Chester County Council. Unanimous approval was given to first reading of an ordinance which read authorized "the execution and delivery of a fee in lieu of tax agreement by and between Chester County and (Project 1233); the execution and delivery of an infrastructure finance agreement by and between Chester County and (Project 1233); the inclusion of certain real property located in Chester County in the York-Chester Industrial Park; the execution and delivery of such documents as may be necessary to effect the intent of this ordinance; and other matters related thereto."
Councilman Alex Oliphant asked Supervisor Carlisle Roddey if he could share details of the project. Roddey said that aside from saying that 43 acres of property was going to be sold in the York-Chester Industrial Park, he couldn't elaborate.
"I'm not at liberty to reveal the purchaser," Roddey said.
Roddey did say the project was expected to net a $40 million investment.
Chester County Council has a special called meeting at 9 a.m. today to vote on second reading of the ordinance.
