Downtown Lewistown

dlilogo_resizedThe Charter Plan for Downtown Lewistown, adopted in spring of 2000, represents a collaborative comprehensive community strategy for guiding investment and leveraging resources to revitalize and develop the urban core.

Patterned after the successful Main Street strategy, the revitalization effort seeks to build upon the assets of Downtown; neighborhoods, architecture, town square, natural setting and unique siting on the Juniata River combined with the creative talent and energies of its citizens to mold the future for the area.

Embodied in the development effort is a spirit of partnership of community leaders, governmental representatives, private property owners and residents to proactively strengthen the Downtown and surrounding neighborhoods while enhancing the appeal and competitive vitality of the entire community.

We invite your comments and suggestions to improve the Downtown, Neighborhoods and neighboring communities in concert with initiatives to shape the region as a whole.

Downtown Lewistown, Inc. is a charitable non-profit 501©(3) organization funded in part by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Community and Economic Development with support from the Mifflin County, Borough of Lewistown, Derry and Granville Townships, Mifflin County Industrial Development Corporation, and local business, industry and private property owners.

Five Points

fivepoints_resizedThe continued step in the revitalization of the Five Points/East End Neighborhood is the implementation of the Strategic Plan. With the close-out of a contract for $250,000 in Residential Reinvestment assistance from the PA Department of Community & Economic Development, work was completed on 43 commercial and residential structures in Lewistown Borough. We anticipate applying for additional funds to allow distribution of applications to home and property owners in the Neighborhood and downtown, and ramped up Committee activities in the area.

These Committees meet to discuss details related to design, safety, improvement of the image of the area, and the economic betterment of residents and businesses in the neighborhood. Call 248-9606 for information on how you may help in this effort.
