New plans offer promise for Redbank Valley and Clarion County
NEW BETHLEHEM – With a new year underway, local leaders are optimistic that good things are coming for the Redbank Valley and Clarion County in 2023.
Last Friday, Clarion County Economic Development Corporation (CCEDC) representatives Jarred Heuer and Jess Funk met with New Bethlehem Mayor Gordon Barrows and Redbank Renaissance President Sandy Mateer to discuss economic development possibilities for New Bethlehem Borough.
In 2021, CCEDC adopted a 10-year strategic plan called “Clarion County 2030 Economic Development Strategy,” which can be found on the group’s website at www. clarioncountyedc.com. Part of the plan includes outreach to boroughs and townships within the county to determine if help can be offered to local volunteers and representatives to accomplish projects to improve the quality of life for residents, attract new business, housing and tourism, and reduce blight.
