When Butler Township Municipal Authority needed to find a larger location for its municipal services and administrative business, it found an ideal, centralized location that would meet its various needs in the CAN DO Corporate Center.
Butler Township officials recently finalized the purchase of a five-acre lot on Site 11 in the Corporate Center and will construct a new municipal services building that will include the police department and Magisterial District Court.
Butler Township officials were looking for a location that would help them better serve the township’s growing population in terms of emergency response time and convenience when conducting municipal business.
Maryanne Petrilla, Butler Township manager, said the CAN DO Corporate Center provided the prime location her staff was looking for. Our population continues to grow and having our daily operations in the heart of the most populated section of the township will enhance public safety and make us more centralized. We are also easily accessible from Route 309, which will make doing business at the municipal complex easier for our residents.
Although township officials considered several properties for its new municipal building, Petrilla said there were many benefits to the CAN DO Corporate Center location that made it the right choice for the new facility.
Constructing a building on a pad-ready site will save the township a significant amount in construction costs. Having access to natural gas will also be a savings because we operate the municipal building 24/7.
The CAN DO Corporate Center is located along State Route 309 and just minutes from Interstates 80 and 81. The park offers a number of infrastructure incentives including easy access to utilities as well as a telecommunications network. The state-of-the-art telecommunications system features 100-percent digital switching, a fiber-optic network and available, dedicated internet access.
Petrilla said working with CAN DO to select the site and finalize the deal was a smooth process and township officials are looking forward to their new home.
CAN DO has been a friend to Butler Township for many years. They have contributed significantly to the economic growth of the township and we are happy to move to the Corporate Center with the hope that we will attract more corporations to locate in the township, she said.
CAN DO President Kevin O'Donnell said, "We're excited to welcome Butler Township to the CAN DO Corporate Center. Their addition to the list of tenants shows that the Corporate Center is a great location for a variety of different business operations."
