Governor Wolf Announces $1 million in Funding for Scranton Downtown Revitalization Project January 12, 2018 Economy, Infrastructure, Jobs That Pay, Press Release Scranton, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today announced the approval of $1 million in funding to help transform a historic and underutilized downtown Scranton building into a vibrant, valuable office that will help revitalize the downtown and bring workers into the city.The funding, supported through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) program, will help create the new Lackawanna County Government Center at the historic Globe building on Wyoming Avenue, bringing this piece of Scranton history back into use and allowing Lackawanna County to consolidate its government office footprint. Renovations to the building began in late summer 2017 and are expected to be completed this year.“I am proud to be here to announce my administration’s investment in downtown Scranton,” Governor Wolf said. “This targeted investment will help to revitalize downtown Scranton and bring workers into the city, while repurposing a historic building.Governor Wolf was joined for the announcement and tour of the project by Senator John Blake, Representative Marty Flynn, Commissioner Patrick O’Malley, and Scranton Mayor Bill Courtright.“I am excited to be here today to stand and work as one – with Governor Wolf, Senator Blake and our County Commissioners – on a project that is going to consolidate services for our residents, save our taxpayers money, return a former government building to the tax rolls and to grow business in our downtown,” Rep. Flynn said.“I sincerely appreciate Governor Wolf’s continued commitment to bringing state investment back to Northeastern Pennsylvania and specifically into the heart of downtown Scranton,” Sen. Blake said. “This state investment reduces the amount of debt Lackawanna County will have to incur to complete the consolidation of services at the former Globe Store. That means less debt service obligations on local taxpayers who will also benefit from more efficient access to county services. The state investment in this project will also serve as a catalyst for additional revitalization in Scranton’s core business district.”“Lackawanna County shares my goals of greater government efficiency, better government services, and the revitalization of our local communities, and this project dovetails with my GO-TIME initiative, which has already helped save over 217 million dollars in taxpayer money,” Governor Wolf said.“Since I became Governor, I have worked hard to ensure that when state government is investing in our local communities, we are directing our resources towards projects that transform our cities, municipalities, and counties into more livable places to work and live.” SHARE Email Facebook Twitter
