Department of Community and Economic Development – Contract No. C000037110 – Bellefonte Waterfront District Redevelopment Plan
This grant was completed in March 2010. The Borough contracted with Delta Development Group, Incorporated in July 2009. A Steering Committee of Community members had been established to guide the project. These members included: Renee Brown; Vana Dainty; Robert Dannaker; Richard Fornicola; Wendy Fultz; Stanley Goldman; Erin Hammerstedt; Donald Holderman; Gary Hoover; Kim Kowalyck; Samual McGinley; Gregory Wendt; and Kimberly Wheeler.
The potential for redevelopment of the waterfront site in downtown Bellefonte is exciting and can be achieved with appropriate preparation and an action-oriented approach. The scope of services addresses the planning and pre-construction activity related to the project. The planning document developed from the tasks outlined in the scope of work will serve as a road map to build strategic public private partnerships and to move forward with implementation of the plan.
A final Public meeting was held at the Courthouse Annex on January 28, 2010. Approximately 75 people were in attendance.
