QUAKERTOWN, Pa. -

Bucks County officials say a multi-million dollar re-development project could bring dozens of new jobs to the area.

Officials unveiled plans to re-purpose a vacant textile mill on Fifth Street in Quakertown Tuesday.

The project is the first to use the county's "Bucks-to-Invest" loan program created earlier this year to spur economic development.

New companies--including a software business--will move into the space when it's done.

Officials say the project will be finished sometime in 2014.
