Governor Wolf Tours Scranton Neighborhood Redevelopment Supported with State Investments

first_imgGovernor Wolf Tours Scranton Neighborhood Redevelopment Supported with State Investments Economy,  Press Release,  Seniors Scranton, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today toured the redevelopment on Cedar Avenue in Scranton to see how the partnerships between his administration, United Neighborhood Centers of Northeastern Pennsylvania (UNC) and local officials and organizations are revitalizing the neighborhood. UNC is leading the project to rebuild several city blocks in South Scranton by creating a mix of new homes for working families and businesses.“The transformation that is happening in this section of Scranton is wonderful to see and a demonstration of what is possible when the commonwealth along with leading organizations like the United Neighborhood Center and other members of the community work together,” said Governor Wolf. “The project is helping to improve lives and transition a neighborhood into a center of opportunity to live, work and play.”UNC began leading the community-wide effort in 2008 to transform the neighborhood with new housing, retail and office spaces to reduce blight, improved community partnerships, decrease crime, and bring the community together. More than $20 million has been invested in the project.Over that time, the Department of Community and Economic Development has worked closely withUNC and local officials to designate the neighborhood as an Elm Street Community, investing more than $2.8 million in the project. The Department of Education invests approximately $120,000 a year through the Education for a Family Learning program.“The tremendous beautification and revitalization efforts that have taken place through the Cedar Avenue project, with United Neighborhood Center, have brought about hope for what could be a broader revitalization of the South Scranton neighborhoods and have revitalized the community,” said Scranton Mayor Bill Courtright.In 2010, the United Neighborhood Community Development Corporation developed 40 housing units in the 500 and 600 blocks of Cedar Avenue including townhouses and apartments with commercial space on the street level and living space on the upper floors. The initiative was funded by $1,790,625 of Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds and $25,000 in Neighborhood Assistance Program tax credits from the Department of Community and Economic Development, $75,000 of HRA funds, $$187,500 of HOME funds, $75,000 of CDBG funds, $94,227 of CHDO funds, $225,000 of Local Share funds, and a $300,000 grant from the Weinberg foundation.The second phase of the project transformed multiple properties on Cedar Avenue and Alder Street into 30 apartments over nine buildings. The phase was supported with $420,000 in Local Share, $500,000 from Lackawanna/Susquehanna Behavioral Health, $878,880 from the Weinberg foundation and $7,170,910 from Low Income Housing Tax Credit Equity.To put a capstone on the decade long revitalization, UNC is in the process of completing the transformation of the former South Scranton Bank and Trust building with $150,000 through the Neighborhood Partnership Program from DCED and pending investments. The anchor for the neighborhood will provide space for the community, businesses and UNC services.The United Neighborhood Center is a nonprofit agency dedicated to meeting the needs of local low-income families, seniors, and youth, while also empowering them to attain self-sufficiency. The organization uses a wrap-around approach to address the emerging needs of the community in six departments including community services, child care, youth, older adults, community education and revitalization, and community health and a Housing/Community Development Corporation.

Kelly hits back at detractors

first_img The UCI was implicated in the Lance Armstrong doping scandal by the US Anti-Doping Agency and was criticised by the World Anti-Doping Agency when an independent panel it established to examine its own alleged complicity was disbanded before it could report. That has led to strong criticism of McQuaid, but his compatriot Kelly thinks the critics have been too harsh on the 63-year-old, who has been president since 2006. “It was a real difficult time for cycling. These were bad years for cycling and McQuaid has suffered because of that. But we must also remember the good things he has done. He has managed to improve the image of cycling in the last few years with the introduction of the biological passport. “That has been working very well. It has taken a lot of riders out of the sport and I think the sport is better for it at the moment. When we look at the way cycling is going at the moment he has done a good job in the latter years.” All eyes will be on Team Sky’s Chris Froome in France after defending champion Sir Bradley Wiggins had to pull out of the race due to injury and illness. Froome has spent much of his recent career in Wiggins’ shadow, but Kelly thinks the Kenya-born 28-year-old can make the step up and challenge for the Tour. “He has proven he can cope with the pressure,” Kelly added. “He has beaten some very good racers who he will be facing on the Tour de France, so there’s no reason why he can’t do it again.” Cycling Ireland’s clubs will decide whether the federation should nominate McQuaid to stand for re-election as Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) president at an extraordinary general meeting in Dublin on Saturday. “I definitely think Pat McQuaid does not get enough credit for what he has done,” said Kelly, a four-time green jersey winner at the Tour de France. Sean Kelly has hit out at Pat McQuaid’s critics as the Irish cycling chief prepares for a crucial vote that could determine whether he stays on as UCI president.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

NBA trade rumors: Grizzlies want to move Andre Iguodala for first-round pick

first_img Rob Pelinka on expectation for Lakers next season: ‘Anything short of a championship is not success’ James Harden on Russell Westbrook trade: ‘It’s going to be a lot of fun this year’ There is some belief within league circles that the Grizzlies are prepared to take Andre Iguodala into the season unless they receive a trade offer featuring a future first-round pick— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) July 12, 2019This is certainly ambitious for Memphis considering 35-year-old Iguodala’s mileage. He’s battled with lower leg injuries in recent years and averaged just 5.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.2 assists with Golden State in 2018-19. But the versatile defender is in high demand.The Lakers, Rockets, Mavericks, Clippers and Nuggets are all rumored to be interested in Iguodala, but they might not be interested enough to risk their futures on a player with a few years of basketball left in him, at best. Related Newscenter_img Memphis is willing to part with Andre Iguodala, but it has a hefty asking price. The Grizzlies acquired the 15-year wing from the Warriors in a trade this offseason and might not move him if they can’t get a future first-round pick out of his many suitors, according to a report from The New York Times. “I have a good idea how much longer I want to play,” Iguodala said earlier this year. “I’m keeping it to myself, but it’s going to be soon. I can play four or five more years. But I won’t.”Memphis is rebuilding the right way and has three top-5 picks in 2019’s No. 2 overall pick Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr., and Josh Jackson at its disposal.The Grizzlies traded away franchise players Mike Conley and Marc Gasol last season and finished 2018-19 with a 33-49 record, which was good for 12th in the Western Conference. But they could turn things around if the assets they’re collecting pan out.last_img read more

(updated 9:45 a.m., Monday) Over 100 Sumner County homes affected from last week’s flooding

first_imgK-55 flooding Saturday afternoon, west of Belle Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Sumner County Emergency Management Director James Fair estimates there are over 100 Sumner homes damaged from flooding from last week storms. Most of those homes are west and south of Belle Plaine.The Ninnescah River, which starts at Cheney Lake and eventually cuts a swath through the northeast section of Sumner County, crested Saturday afternoon at an estimated 30.6 feet.“I can’t tell you on a historical perspective of whether this was the highest the Ninnescah has been,” Fair said. “But people keep comparing this to the Halloween flood of 1998. Some think it is worse.” (Video produced by 254 Productions, which worked in conjunction with the Sumner County Sheriff.) South-Central Kansas received anywhere from 6 to 14 inches of rainfall that started Thursday and lasted until Saturday morning. Most of the water flowing into Sumner County came from rainfall from Kingman and Sedgwick County.As a result, water flooded the northeastern part of Sumner County, and made travel to Belle Plaine from the west and south impossible. Residents living in the town, originally built on the Arkansas River bed, were forced to go north if they wanted to leave the community up until Sunday.K-55, the east-west highway going into Belle Plaine from the west, has periodically been flooded. But few people remember the Belle Plaine Y being as far under water. But by Sunday, the water rescinded and travel was normal again.Belle Plaine Y has been re-opened but on Saturday it was far from being drivable.Sumner County Emergency workers worked around the clock for 72 hours rescuing people who were stranded by the high water.“I think in the last 72 hours, some fire/EMS workers had a total of 4 to 6 hours of sleep,” Fair said. “The second they would get home, then there was another call for a rescue. They couldn’t catch a break.”Most of the homes that were damaged were built before Sumner County was zoned and declared a flood plain. Many of those who were rescued did not adhere to warnings that they needed to evacuate.There were no injuries or deaths caused by the flood. A firefighter from the city of Belle Plaine got caught in the current and was being carried downstream. He was able to grab on a rock or tree limb and drag himself out of the current.In Wellington, water accumulated to levels unseen in years. The municipal golf course which serves as a barometer for flood levels during had water covering the No. 3 fairway Saturday. Woods Park to the south was closed as of Sunday.People who see a damaged road should call 211, give the location and describe the problem.Anyone who has a water well that they think has been affected by the flooding is asked to visit or call the City of Wichita Environmental Health Department at 316-268-8351. Officials also gave this caution: “Drink only treated water and wash your hands after contact with flood waters or items that have been in flood waters.” Another storm system is projected to come through stating late Tuesday evening. Meteorologists are predicting it will be more fast moving than the one that came through last week which stood still. For full photo gallery of the flooding click here.———UPDATE: Wellington Fire/EMS sent a press release stating staff assisted multiple agencies with boat rescue operations in northern part of Sumner County over the weekend.“The department sent two staff with a boat to perform rescues of people who were either trapped in their home, vehicle and trees. Staff responded on three separate occasions over the weekend with most rescues occurring in the Ponderosa Estate area off U.S. 81 near the Ninnescah River.”Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.
