East High Street Pedestrian Improvements Project
The Borough has been awarded a $200,000 Community Development Block Grant to extend sidewalks along East High Street from their current endpoints to the RR crossing. This will also connect to the proposed trail that will be constructed as part of the Memorial Park Stream restoration Project. Work is anticipated to begin later this year or early 2022.

Memorial Park Stream Restoration Project

The Borough has now been awarded SEVEN grants to date totaling $1,586,931 for the Memorial Park stream restoration project.
This project is a result of a mandate by PA DEP / EPA for the Borough (and all municipalities) to meet the Chesapeake Bay pollution reduction regulatory requirements. Barring unanticipated changes to these requirements, this project will enable the Borough to satisfy the obligations of at least two 5-year permit cycles. These grants will cover the costs of this mandated project, greatly reducing the financial burden on the taxpayers of the Borough.
The project has been awarded to Flyway Excavating and work is now underway.
The covered bridge and walking path will remain closed until project completion, but will be opened for Farm Show week. Click on “Current Projects” on left side bar for more details.
