PHILIPSBURG – The Philipsburg Revitalization Corporation, Philipsburg Borough, and Centre County Planning and Community Development Office formally invite you to attend the Philipsburg Preservation Plan Public Meeting to be held July 14 at 6:00 p.m. at Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church at the corner of E. Presqueisle and N. Fourth Streets in Philipsburg.
The PRC received federal Preserve America money, through the Pennsylvania Historic and Museum Commission, to fund this plan. The Historic Preservation Plan provides local units of government a working document to identify historic and cultural resources in the county or municipality; to consider the issues, problems and opportunities associated with those resources; to explore the possibility of county-wide and regional approaches to management of important resources; and to develop goals, policies, and strategies for their appropriate use, conservation, preservation and protection that are consistent with those established for other comprehensive plan elements.
The role of the public will be to tell planners what historic and cultural resources are important to the borough and to help guide our consultants by providing public input as they compile Philipsburg’s plan.
Visit our booth at Heritage Days, July 7-9 and tell us your favorite historic sites and memories then join us to the public meeting! Again, the meeting will be held on July 14 at 6:00 p.m. at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Hope to see you there!
