The 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.
