In the summer of 2021, the Borough entered a lease with Norfolk Southern for the river access area at the end of 3rd Ave Alley. Please join Valerie Copenhaver, Director of Community & Economic Development, to share your ideas on how to improve this area. What kind of amenities, activities, and events would you like to see? The community will also explore opportunities to improve the streetscape of 3rd Ave Alley.
