Meeting next week to discuss Helmsburg’s future

HELMSBURG — All are welcome at a discussion at the Brown County Community Church Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. to identify some the next steps to help accelerate improvements for Helmsburg.

The Brown County Redevelopment Commission is involved, as well as Helmsburg residents Cindy Steele and Harrietta Weddle.

“There is currently a critical mass of vacant properties in Helmsburg — some currently on the market, some soon to be for sale, and others potentially for sale — that could be used for businesses or homes,” Steele said.

Some properties are already zoned commercial with access to sewers and broadband Internet, she said.

Redevelopment commission members said they believe Helmsburg might be an area with significant and immediate opportunities.
