WEST MANCHESTER ¬– A tract of land housing a longtime vacant grocery store in Dover Township will be redeveloped into a new Lidl grocery store partially through a $500,000 Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) grant, Rep. Seth Grove (R-Dover) announced today.

The land, located at the corner of Carlisle Road and Hilton Avenue, will be home to a Lidl grocery store once demolition of the existing building and construction of the new store is complete.

“I want to thank Sen. Mike Regan (R-31) for his work to secure this grant to revitalize this part of the township. The existing building at the site has been vacant for years and has been an eyesore in our community,” Grove said. “This project will breathe new economic life into this part of the 196th District while providing jobs for local residents.”

The $11.5 million project includes the removal of existing buildings at the site and the ground up construction of the new store.

RACP grants are for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational, and historical improvement projects. RACP projects are to 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. The program requires a dollar for dollar match in non-state funding in the project and all project related expenses must be incurred and satisfied in advance of approved reimbursements from the state.
