The Greater Carlisle Project
Choosing a Sustainable Future
The Greater Carlisle Project is bringing together people from the communities of the Greater Carlisle area to improve the quality of life for all our inhabitants by creating a sustainable, healthier, economically robust and culturally vibrant future. The project encompasses the boroughs of Carlisle, Mount Holly Springs and Newville and the townships of Dickinson, Middlesex, North Middleton, South Middleton, and West Pennsboro.
The Greater Carlisle Project emerged from a series of meetings convened by Dickinson College’s Center for Sustainability Education beginning in November 2012. Participants in the meetings and Project have included residents, businesses, organizations and local government agencies from across the Greater Carlisle area. An interim steering committee, formed in March 2013, produced drafts of a vision statement, mission statement and one-year plan for the Project. More than 70 people from area boroughs and townships attended an open meeting on October 23, 2013 at the Carlisle Borough Hall and endorsed these documents.
Additional outcomes of the October 23rd meeting include the formation of teams to plan and implement projects and educational events in the coming months. The vision, mission and one-year plan of the Greater Carlisle Project, and the minutes of the October 23rd and other meetings can be accessed using the navigation bar on the left.
