LOCK HAVEN, Nov. 2 – State Rep. Mike Hanna, D-Clinton/Centre, today announced a state grant has been awarded to the City of Lock Haven to assist in the creation of a 60-foot boat dock along the banks of the Susquehanna River.

 

The dock, located near the amphitheater and Jay Street Bridge, is designed to provide boaters with a connection to Lock Haven, and is designed to be removed during winter or high water events.

 

“I am pleased to announce this grant for Lock Haven,” Hanna said. “This is an excellent project that will further tie together the wonderful recreational opportunities of the river with the shops, restaurants and events downtown. The Susquehanna is a wonderful resource, and I am happy to support a project that will make it more attractive while also supporting economic growth in town.”

 

The $14,250 grant was awarded by the Department of Community and Economic Development’s Keystone Communities program, which is designed to encourage the creation of partnerships between the public and private sectors that jointly support local initiatives such as the growth and stability of neighborhoods and communities, social and economic diversity, and a strong and secure quality of life.
