Zelienople Downtown
Revitalization Improvement Project

WE HEARD YOU ZELIENOPLE!  The public was asked for their input at the initial public meeting for the Zelienople Revitalization in February at the Strand Theater.  More than 125 people gave their opinion about what could be done to make Zelienople look and function better.  Those considerations became the basis for the preliminary plan that was presented to the public on May 10th.

 

Last year, a group of business leaders and citizens met to discuss the concern about our aging downtown and lack of business traffic.  This group formed the non-profit organization, Zelienople, PA Revitalization, Inc, or ZPR.  Contributions from the private sector, the Borough of Zelienople and the generosity of several local banks have helped provide most of the seed money needed to begin the process of implementing a plan. The board secured E.G.&G, a consulting firm that specializes in downtown renewal.

 

E.G.&G. has completed more than 70 successful urban revitalization projects. They have been recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and have been noted for many design awards.  They have measurable results in economic development, business expansion and job creation.  They work with the communities to help secure grants and assist in raising money.  Slippery Rock and Grove City are two E.G.&G. projects.

 

E.G.&G. presented the conceptual plan to the public at the May 10th meeting.  Residents will be able to follow the plan on the Zelienople Borough website zelieboro.org/revitalizezelie.htm.  This site will provide before and after plans, information about the organization, updates on funding, contact information and will provide a place for online donations.

 

 The borough is excited about the community’s participation in planning the town’s revitalization.  “We are thrilled by the response of the Zelie residents!” said Don Pepe, borough manager.   “I am very confident that this project will be the beginning of a new life for our beautiful town”.

 

Jim Ayers, president of the Zelie organization states, “In a short time period, Zelienople PA Revitalization Inc. has made significant progress by creating our organizational structure and engaging E.G.&G, a premier consultant in community improvement projects. The board is excited to share E.G.&G's preliminary conceptual design with the public on May 10th. We look forward to partnering with business owners, borough government, and the public in creating a more vibrant Main Street and improved quality of life for the citizens of Zelienople.”
