Williamsburg eyes funding for outdoor recreation area | News, Sports, Jobs


WILLIAMSBURG – Members of the Blair County Planning Commission will send a letter of support for the Borough of Williamsburg’s application for a grant for a site development master plan for the Williamsburg Outdoor Recreation Area.

The proposal is to create a plan for 51 acres of land, specifically, the construction of outdoor recreational infrastructure to support the borough’s identity as Trail Town. The development would strengthen Williamsburg as a recreation destination along the various trails that intersect the community, including the 911 National Memorial Trail, Lower Trail and Mid-State Trail, said regional planner Jamie L. Klink.

“We are considering hiring a consultant to see what we can do with the 64 acre area we have at the Penelec site. We would like feedback on what we can do, what is possible to do with the property. We want to do what is best for the property and the community,” said Mayor Ted Hyle.

“We pride ourselves on being a Trail Town, hopefully we can do more business in Williamsburg.”
