Monroe County officials want more space to meet growing demands for government services

Editor's Note:
This Pocono Record article was originally headlined "Potential buyer of old ShopRite building surfaces" but I found the last paragraph of the article to be most intriguing, in case you missed it:

The possibility of a new owner of the Monroe Plaza, within walking distance of downtown Stroudsburg, comes as borough officials are discussing ways of revitalizing the downtown and making the area more attractive to developers. One idea being considered would permit the construction of taller buildings as the borough seeks new tax revenues to offset properties that have dropped off the tax rolls through acquisitions of buildings by Monroe County officials who want more space to meet growing demands for government services.
