Rust or Revival: Altoona Community Forum

Sep 12, 2014

You are invited to the Keystone Crossroads Community Forum.

Pennsylvania’s cities and towns are full of promise, but plagued by problems. Chronic issues such as crumbling infrastructure, underfunded schools, and dwindling tax base are holding cities back.

What can Pennsylvania’s cities, large and small, do to address their problems and fulfill their promise? We’d like to hear what you think.

Pennsylvania’s public radio stations have launched a statewide journalism initiative to explore these questions. It’s called Keystone Crossroads. Reporters in State College, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Harrisburg are fanning out across the state to report on root causes and potential solutions for the Commonwealth’s urban challenges.

This forum is your chance to give your input. Make your voice heard about the issues facing the places where you live, work and hang out.

Join us Tuesday, October 7th at the Penn State Altoona Devorris Downtown Center for this Keystone Crossroads community forum. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. The program runs from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Take part in small-group dialogues facilitated by the Penn Project for Civic Engagement. Ask questions and air your views.

PLEASE REGISTER so we can get an idea of how many people to expect.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information or to sign up by phone, call Emily Reddy at (814)863-4233.
