PennDOT targets New Stanton for $50M project
Click the below link to read the news coverage of The June 26th, 2013 “Community Conversation,” a community visioning, public engagement event --
Perhaps others will consider adding other comments to the Tribune-Review webpage, as the below, former resident did, to continue the conversation?
What are the highest-value assets, strengths, possibilities, or opportunities of the New Stanton area?
The event planners hope to have the community feedback information (that was gathered at the meeting on the flipcharts and worksheets) compiled within the next few weeks.
Thanks to all who all who participated, and especially to those that volunteered as co-facilitators!
"I used to live in New Stanton. After having my 2 boys, I moved to the Scottdale area because here, we can go for walks safely, visit playgrounds (there are 3 within comfortable walking distance, vs absolutely NONE in New Stanton), go to the library, etc... There is just nothing for families with kids in New Stanton. Not even a grocery store, you have to go to either Mt. Pleasant in one direction or Greensburg in the other. I’m surprised anyone actually lives in that area. It was miserable and I’m glad I left." -- comment on the Tribune-Review webpage, http://triblive.com/news/westmoreland/4262501-74/borough-stanton-traffic#ixzz2Y6X3Lf5f
