Susquehanna Gateway funding problems?

As much as $2.25 million is stuck in Pennsylvania's ongoing budget stalemate; one of the agencies that would be getting funded from that pool of money is the Susquehanna Gateway Heritage Area, a 15-year-old effort to bolster river towns and increase tourism.

The heritage area was involved in getting the art deco lights for the Route 462 bridge in Columbia, the turnover of more than 3,400 acres of PPL land along the Susquehanna, and in developing several popular trails in the region.

Beginning in March, the heritage area will begin operating the new Columbia Crossing River Trails Center in Columbia that will serve as the popular pathway's trailhead. (Funding for operating the visitors center is not jeopardized.)



  1. Because its tax and only TAX PAYERS money!!!!!!!

  2. Let them figure out how to generate income to offset the tax burden..
    Overnight trailer parking,,, just a thought.
    One of many.

  3. Did they the "borough" agree to make a office that was fit for the heritage request? How much money is the manager making a year? These are tax dollars that need to be not wasted but i see that it is!!
