The North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission has been working on the Regional Greenways and Active Transportation Plan for the six-county planning region that includes Cameron, Clearfield, Elk, Jefferson, McKean, and Potter Counties which began in August 2021. This integrated plan examines various methods by which greenways and active transportation networks can be achieved for North Central Pennsylvania.


As a part of the project, a project website has been created and will evolve with updated information as the project progresses. The website is accessible here: https://bit.ly/NCGPA2022. To further engage the residents and stakeholders of the North Central Pennsylvania region, an interactive online mapping tool (available under the ‘Participate’ tab on the project website) is being used to garner feedback on specific locations of known concerns (missing sidewalk connections), potential connections (opportunities to connect a trail to a park/fill important trail gaps), or long-term aspirations. In addition to the online tools, the Design Team will be attending various community events across the region, which will be posted on the project website when confirmed.
