The architecture of the Tanger center captures the charm of Pennsylvania’s historic, colonial-era carriage houses. The center’s unique, shopper-friendly design features five convenient points of entry, all leading to beautifully landscaped courtyards. Once inside, abundant, English Garden-style flowers and greenery and carefully placed park benches will evoke a sense of walking along an Old World promenade. Covered north and south walkways will allow a comfortable shopping atmosphere in all seasons while sky lit roofs provide plenty of natural light into the galleries below.
The $75 million Tanger Outlet Center development will have a very positive impact on the local and state economies and as it helps create and estimated 250 construction jobs during the building period and then more than 800 quality, retail management positions upon opening. The center’s estimated 4.5 million annual shoppers will also provide significant economic benefit to area hotels, restaurants and many service businesses. Additionally, the center will generate estimated local property tax revenue of $1.2 million each year.

Marianna & West Beth Comprehensive Plan and Executive Summary
April 21, 2014
Marianna Borough and West Bethlehem Township recognize that their futures are somewhat entwined; what is good for one community is good for the region. The key to building successful partnerships is to identify common issues facing both Marianna and West Beth. The Comprehensive Plan for Marianna and West Bethlehem was developed over the course of two years, with input received from planning board members as well as the public at-large. A series of seven community development objectives were developed to address priority issues and concerns. Each objective has corresponding goals and actions, that not only provide policy tools, but specific projects that once implemented, will assist the communities in achieving the goals they set forth. Through open communication and dialogue, the communities can reach their desired vision for the future.
