Thumbs down

Cecil Whig - - OPINION -

To the clo­sure of Per­ryville Out­let Cen­ter. Af­ter dwin­dling down to only a hand­ful of shops, the shop­ping cen­ter of­fi­cially closed Satur­day. The owner is re­port­edly in talks with a po­ten­tial buyer of the prop­erty. Mean­while, the town of Per­ryville is in the process of up­dat­ing its list of en­ter­prise zone prop­er­ties to in­clude the prop­erty, which is zoned high­way com­mer­cial. Once ap­proved, any de­vel­oper who uses the site for such uses as light in­dus­trial, ware­houses, dis­tri­bu­tion or man­u­fac­tur­ing could get prop­erty tax ben­e­fits from both the town and Ce­cil County. Here’s hop­ing the owner can find a buyer who will re­vi­tal­ize the site and bring much-needed jobs to the county.
