The Boroughs of Renovo and South Renovo, and Noyes Township in Clinton County received official designation as a Susquehanna Greenway River Town in recognition of Renovo’s importance as a center for economic activity, community life, and recreational opportunities connected to the West Branch Susquehanna River.
The designation was made by the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership to all three municipalities for their work on revitalization strategies and their shared vision for better connections to the river, new riverfront parks, biking and walking trails, and streetscape improvements.
This collaborative has resulted in grant funding for demolition of blighted properties, which will be replaced by a new river access and park, as well as streetscape improvements. These improvements will benefit everyone and will help to attract further investment in the community.
The Susquehanna Greenway River Towns Program offers recognition and assistance to Greenway communities that value the River as an asset for sustainable economic development.(Reprinted from the November 9 DCNR Resource newsletter. Click Here to sign up for your own copy.)
