SCRANTON, LACKAWANA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A neighborhood in Scranton is going to get some much-needed improvements.
Wells Fargo Regional Foundation presented $100,000 to Neighborworks Northeastern Pennsylvania this morning. Local, state and federal governments are working together with citizens and citizen’s groups to decide how the money should be used to improve West Scranton.
“Bringing together residents, business leaders, other folks from the community and really putting a vision together for this great neighborhood,” Neighborworks president and CEO Jesse Ergott said.
“Coming together to figure out the best way to revitalize neighborhoods and that is so important. We don’t want to see Scranton go downhill. We want to keep it vital. We want to keep it the Electric City,” Pennsylvania 8th Congressional District Matt Cartwright said.
Neighborworks hopes to be in their new facility on Smith Street in West Scranton by the end of the year.
