Initiative Continues for Community College

The Community College Initiative effort led by Tuscarora Intermediate Unit (TIU) continues to make progress. Penn Highlands Community College, founded in 1994 with its corporate base in Johnstown, is now working with the TIU toward a location in the MCIDC Plaza. According to Walter Asonevich, President of PHCC, the first classes could be as early as Fall, 2013. Once the program is started, Asonevich said, courses in nursing and teacher education, business administration, and others could be offered.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

GE Growing and Investing in Mifflin County

General Electric Inspection Technologies (GEIT) is completing a major expansion that further establishes the Mifflin County plant as the global headquarters for this division of General Electric Company. The 52,000 sf addition to its existing 82,000 sf plant will expand manufacturing capacity and capabilties, create a Customer Collaboration Center, and launch GEIT's Nondestructive Testing Academy. According to Mr. John Prendergast, project manager, the Academy will help satisfy the demand for personnel in the nondestructive testing occupations.

GEIT is a world leader in nondestructive testting solutions. The plant at the Mifflin County Industrial Park employs about 250 skilled employees, engineers, and support personnel.

 


  Mann Edge Terrace Ready for Occupancy

Residents for Lewistown's newest downtown housing development will begin moving into their new homes in early January. The project, led by the SEDA-COG Housing Development Corporation and MCIDC, costs a little over $6 million. The primary partner in financing is the Juniata Valley Bank. Other participants include the Pa Housing Finance Agency, the Pa DCED, Mifflin County Commissioners, the Borough of Lewistown, MCIDC, and SEDA-COG. Because the senior housing project is a reuse of industrial land, the Pa DEP played an important role in the early planning and development.

Mr. Mike Fisher, SEDA-COG's project manager, notes that not only was a blighted area substantially improved, but about 40 new people will be living in the downtown and tax revenues to local governments from the parcel will triple. MCIDC still owns an adjacent parcel. Options for future redevelopment are under review but no decision will be made in the immediate future.


Downtown Lewistown Projects in Construction Phase

The improvements throughout Lewistown, the County Seat, are in the implementation stage. While separate because of contracts and timetables, Market Street from Wayne to Monument Square and the Fountain Square Project are in construction. Lewistown could be considered the regional center for heritage, arts, and entertainment.

Working together, Downtown Lewistown, Inc. and Mifflin County Planning and Development Offices are responsible for the improvements and cooperated with the strategic planning.

A four-block area surrounding Monument Square is included in the proposed Kish Creek Riverwalk, which forms  a gateway to downtown Lewistown. This will coincide with renovations to the old Embassy Theater, the historic courthouse renovations, and other building upgrades in the greater Lewistown area.
