Revitalize Potter County’s website is up and running, Will Hunt, planning director of the county, announced during the last Potter County Commissioners meeting.
Revitalize Potter County has a variety of resources for residents to utilize, Hunt said. People can access local resources, unemployment opportunities, and state and federal organizations. Hunt said they will continue to work with representatives and local agencies to seek as much information and opportunities as the county continues to revitalize.
The website will be rolled out in four phases; it is currently moving through phase two. Phase three, according to Potter County Today, will include administering a grant/loan program to assist local businesses, engaging with partners from the agricultural, tourism, commercial business, manufacturing, education and other sectors for ongoing implementation of business support initiatives, and identifying agencies or organizations to carry out priorities identified by the work group and partners.
Revitalize Potter County can be found by visiting pottercountypa.net and clicking on “Community Development’ under the “Departments” tab.
