Former National Guard Armory site to house police

CENTRE COUNTY, Pa. -- The borough has bought a former National Guard Armory site from the state and questions are floating around with how they'll pay for it.

Interestingly enough it comes at a time when Bellefonte has already been involved in several other high-profile development projects.

Soon there will be a lot of more room for the Bellefonte police cars, borough equipment and EMS vehicles.

The borough purchased three buildings nearby on the nearly 8-acre armory site.

Were looking at options but police and EMS are the top priority, said Bellefonte manager Ralph Stewart.

The cost for the armory just over $750,000 and Bellefonte is already eying a multimillion-dollar project for its waterfront district, so where is all of this money to come from?
Plans call for some of the property to be leased.

Well look at long-term financing, said Stewart.

Centre County administrators were also eying the armory site as a possible future home for a new Center Crest nursing home but the county was outbid by the borough.
