What We Look To Achieve

Redevelopment Opportunities

The cover of our latest Ag Quarterly shows a historic barn, one of dozens that dot our beautiful rural communities.  The update also highlights so many aspects of our commitment to Agriculture in Berks County.  Learn more about the National Ag Day Celebration from March 19th of this year which toured one of the oldest mills in the County, Bobb’s Mill. Events like this are key to the IMAGINE Berks strategy of Supporting agri-business industry growth and collaboration.
