Wolf’s Restore Pennsylvania Infrastructure Plan SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Infrastructure,  Press Release,  Restore Pennsylvania Harrisburg, PA – The leaders of communities in southcentral Pennsylvania are voicing their support for Gov. Wolf’s Restore Pennsylvania aggressive infrastructure investment plan.“The capacity to proactively invest in a community’s infrastructure is foundational to its long-term sustainability,” said Susquehanna Township Manager David Kratzer Jr. “Governor Wolf’s proposed Restore Pennsylvania initiative will provide communities with the much-needed financial resources to be able to do just that. As such Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County is proud to support the initiative.”Councils for Susquehanna Township, Swatara Township, the City of Harrisburg, Steelton Borough and Millersburg Borough each issued a resolution calling for support for Gov. Wolf’s Restore Pennsylvania plan. The Dauphin and Lebanon County Borough’s Association issued its own resolution on behalf of its members.Last month, Gov. Wolf visited Millersburg to see the impact Restore Pennsylvania could have on assisting the community with remediating blight.“Millersburg Borough Council applauds Governor Wolf’s efforts to assist local municipalities across Pennsylvania with grant funding targeted at reinvigorating our communities,” said Millersburg Borough Council President Christopher Dietz. “The steadfast will and grit of our local leaders can move mountains, but without adequate funding, even the best laid plans, including those to remediate blight in our community, remain dormant. Restore Pennsylvania will provide much-needed funding that will help our community create a brighter future.”Lancaster Mayor Danene Sorace said in a letter to the Lancaster PA Delegation and General Assembly that Restore Pennsylvania could provide support to assist the city with modernizing its historic infrastructure, including making updates to its stormwater and sewer systems and abating lead in older buildings.“Governor Wolf’s Restore Pennsylvania Initiative, which seeks to invest $4.5 billion in improvements to Pennsylvania’s infrastructure would offer welcome relief, especially as it relates to lead abatement in our aged housing stock and stormwater mitigation,” Mayor Sorace wrote. “Therefore, I urge you to support the Restore PA initiative. Let’s realize the full benefit of our natural gas resources in support of Pennsylvanians.”Mayor Sorace was joined in her support by Lancaster City Council, which approved a resolution formally supporting Restore Pennsylvania.Gov. Wolf visited Marietta and Columbia, both in Lancaster County, to discuss how Restore Pennsylvania could assist in other areas like blight removal and flood mitigation and recovery. Marietta faced devastating flooding last year, while Columbia is struggling to find funding to renovate or demolish blighted buildings.“Pennsylvania is a historic state with legacy infrastructure that has not kept up with the times. With Restore Pennsylvania, we can preserve our history while upgrading our infrastructure to meet today’s needs,” said Gov. Wolf. “Restore Pennsylvania is designed to allow local officials to make decisions on using the funds, allowing them to tailor projects to best meet the needs of the communities they represent.”Restore Pennsylvania is a statewide plan to aggressively address the commonwealth’s vital infrastructure needs. Funded through a commonsense severance tax that the Independent Fiscal Office has determined will be primarily paid for by out-of-state residents, Restore Pennsylvania is the only plan that will help make Pennsylvania a leader in the 21st century.View the full Restore Pennsylvania plan.last_img read more
