HARRISBURG, Aug. 2 – The Greater Easton Development Partnership today was awarded a $300,000 state grant, according to state Rep. Robert Freeman.
The Keystone Communities Program grant will allow the partnership to complete Church Street pedestrian plaza and exterior improvements for the Easton Public Market.
“The revitalization of our communities is an important economic development tool to keep current shops open, encourage new businesses to start and others to relocate in Pennsylvania, while providing a great quality of life for residents to enjoy,” said Freeman, D-Northampton.
“The Easton Public Market has proven to be an extremely successful venue for fresh and prepared foods as well as craft products. It has become a real gathering spot for the community and a draw for people visiting Easton from out of town. This grant will enhance the market’s success.”
The local grant was part of $5 million awarded statewide to fund 41 projects in 21 counties.
The Keystone Communities Program is designed to encourage the creation of partnerships between public and private sector that jointly support local initiatives such as the growth and stability of neighborhoods and communities; social and economic diversity; and a strong and secure quality of life. The program allows communities to tailor assistance to meet the needs of specific revitalization efforts.
