Seeking to provide Susquehanna County with further indoor recreational opportunities along with youth focused programs, Rep. Jonathan Fritz (R-Susquehanna/Wayne) announced that the Susquehanna County Recreational Center was awarded $11,250 by the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED).

I am pleased to see that the Susquehanna County Recreation Center will benefit from this funding,” said Fritz. “By establishing additional recreational programs it will allow for more of the community to be active and engaged in healthy conduct as well as encourage locals and visitors to participate in organized events; thus providing a boost to our county’s economy.”

This funding would provide the engineering design and specifications necessary to pursue future funding and support from fundraising and grants for construction of a facility that would be a win for Susquehanna County. Preliminary designs include potential office space for possible doctors’ offices, day care, physical therapy offices and more.

The DCED’s Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) is a tax credit program that encourages businesses to invest in projects which improve distressed areas.
