POTTSTOWN — The new land bank in town is getting underway, adopting guidelines and selecting staff.
Peggy Lee-Clark, the director of PAID, Pottstown’s economic development organization, will also be the director of the land bank.
Although her appointment is not yet formalized, Borough Manager Justin Keller confirmed the arrangement and was discussed in January, according to the minutes of the Jan. 28 land bank board meeting.
The law firm of Wolf-Baldwin Associates, which employs Borough Solicitor Charles D. Garner Jr., will also provide legal services to the land bank and Assistant Borough Solicitor Matthew Hovey was at the Feb. 25 land bank board meeting fulfilling that role.
For now, the borough is covering the legal costs for the land bank as well as providing $25,000 worth of seed money, Keller said.
