Northwest Savings Bank recently presented the Revitalization Of Youngsville Association (ROY) with a $10,000 donation to be used towards the streetscape's required additional design on East Main Street.
At present, construction on Railroad Street has been delayed due to the U.S. Postal Service, at the Federal level, not giving Youngsville an easement. "Our borough office is presently working with our congressman to resolve the easement issues with the Post Office. We are still hoping to begin sometime this year," said ROY Past President Nancy Holmberg. "ROY has been extremely successful in raising funds to make our renovation happen. I think this contribution from Northwest shows how well they serve our community."
For Youngsville, this donation means yet another large portion of its downtown revitalization project, which has been in the works since 2004, will be completed without burdening the borough's general fund. For more information call Nancy Holmberg at 814/563-7966.
