The Blairsville Community Development Authority (BCDA) and the Indiana County Office of Planning & Development (ICOPD) are partnering to create The Murphy Lot Visioning Project, an engagement process that will use community input to design a plan for the Murphy Lot.


Due to stipulations attached to the grant money used to demolish the Murphy building, the site must sit vacant for seven years before it can be redeveloped. Participants in the Murphy Lot Visioning Project will have the opportunity to share their ideas about how the Murphy Lot should look and how it can be used during this period of vacancy. Unique knowledge and experiences gathered from Blairsville residents will help us make a difference in the development of downtown Blairsville. All voices are welcome!
