Brooks Partnered in Funding Award for Corry’s Green Junction Park Project

HARRISBURG (Aug. 1, 2019) After partnering with her fellow Erie-area legislators, local business and community leaders, Corry Redevelopment Authority Executive Director Rick Novotny, and other elected officials, Sen. Michele Brooks joined her colleagues in announcing the awarding of a $1 million state grant to the City of Corry through the state’s highly competitive Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP).

The project will help fulfill the vision of Green Junction Park at the heart of the City of Corry. It will consist of the renovation and development of approximately 1.7 acres of land that includes two historic train depots, along with the addition of a pavilion/amphitheater, new hardscapes and greenways.

“I am very happy to hear that this worthwhile project was supported through the RACP program,” Brooks said. “By adding pavements, benches, an educational children’s play area, a museum, a restaurant and more, this innovative public-private partnership will enhance the array of recreational, commercial and educational opportunities in the community.”  

“This investment will help keep and attract businesses, residents and visitors to the area, and enhance the beauty and great economic potential of Corry,” Brooks said. “This is a positive step in helping to keep Erie County moving forward.”
