Notes from the Revitalization Meeting…..
Before his untimely death last year, Pine Grove Township Supervisor Ray Harris initiated an effort to improve the physical appearance of downtown Russell. His overall goal was to make Russell a more attractive and quaint village that would make all Pine Grove Township residents proud. In tribute to Ray’s vision, the effort to improve Russell has continued. A group of concerned Pine Grove residents has met monthly since January of this year to discuss and learn about community revitalization. Ultimately, we hope to have a specific revitalization plan developed and ready for implementation by the summer of 2017.
We are encouraging any Pine Grove Township residents that would like to participate in the revitalization effort and have input into the plan to attend meetings of the revitalization group. The meetings are held the first Monday of each month at 6:30 PM at the Town Hall (with the exception of July, as this meeting will be held on July 11). The meetings usually last about an hour.
