Rep. Martin Causer (R-Cameron/McKean/Potter) announced today a $179,200 grant has been awarded to Mt. Jewett Borough for its ongoing work to create the Main Street Plaza Pocket Park.
“This is another great investment in the Mt. Jewett community that supports a project to further capitalize on the recreational opportunities available in and around the town,” Causer said. “I commend local officials and volunteers for their hard work and vision.”
The park project will involve rehabilitating a vacant lot downtown to include an outdoor amphitheater, accompanied by a patio/seating area. A comfort station with restrooms will also be installed for use by local patrons. The goal is to bring people downtown and encourage the development of other vacant buildings nearby.
The grant was awarded through the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Community Conservation Partnership Program. The borough previously received a $120,000 grant from the Commonwealth Financing Authority.
