Community Meeting Sept. 12 @ 6

The Cochranton Area Redevelopment Effort (CARE) plans to hold a community meeting on September 12 at the Motzing Center in Cochranton. The group which began in 2011 has dedicated itself to enhancing community assets, preserving historical importance of the area and developing new interests using the area’s natural beauty and resources. Currently the organization is collaborating with the builders of the newly approved senior housing center, completing and dedicating a small green space in town to the area’s veterans, working with the Lions Club on the playground area of the community park, improving the launch and landing site at the French Creek access point in town and planning the 2020 French Creek Heritage Event. New projects among others include coordinating with the Greenways Trail to extend the pathways currently in place, assisting the Fair Board with planned updates to the Cochranton fairgrounds, and creating a Visitor’s Center. The community meeting is designed to inform local residents of these projects and more. CARE Corps will be launched as well. This volunteer group is open to anyone wanting to participate in the ongoing and/or upcoming CARE projects and programs. The meeting is slated for 6 pm and is open to the public. The Motzing Center is located at 157 W. Adams St. in Cochranton. Please plan to attend.
