Lock Haven University to Host Public River Town Meeting

Lock Haven, PA – Lock Haven University will host a public meeting in which the Susquehanna Greenways Partnership will present a plan to obtain River Town status for Lock Haven City and Woodward Township.

WHAT:          Public Meeting on Obtaining River Town Status

WHEN:          Thursday, March 27, 2014 7:00 p.m.

WHERE:       Lock Haven University’s Durrwachter Alumni Conference Center

WHO:             Todd Nesbitt, tnesbitt@lhup.edu

The meeting, scheduled for 7:00 p.m., will be an “Open House” setting where local groups can display and disseminate information.

Should the City of Lock Haven and Woodward Township receive River Town status, they will receive technical assistance to revitalize and celebrate their connection to the Susquehanna River. The Susquehanna Greenway Partnership holds a vision for a system-wide network of vibrant River Towns, actively connected to the Susquehanna and engaged with each other, as in early days where river towns were at the center of economic activity.

There are both short and long term benefits to being a River Town, and the public is strongly encouraged to attend this public meeting to hear the presentation and ask questions.
