Potter County Visitors Association to receive $5,000.00

PA Wilds Gets Grant Money

The Pennsylvania Wilds is sharing in nearly $3 million dollars worth of Regional Marketing Partnership grants awarded today.

$90,000 is going to the 12-county region that includes McKean, Cameron, Clarion, Clearfield, Clinton, Elk, Forest, Jefferson, Lycoming, Potter, Tioga and Warren counties.

As for Tourism Promotion Assistance grants, the Allegheny National Forest Vacation Bureau will receive nearly $14,000; the Potter County Visitors Association, nearly $5,000; and the Warren County Visitors Bureau, a little over $7,000.

“Even in a challenging economy, Pennsylvania recognizes the need to invest in our tourism industry because it generates more than $28 billion in economic impact – an amount greater than the recently enacted state budget,” Governor Ed Rendell said.

Pennsylvania is the fifth-most visited state, attracting more than 140 million visitors a year. More than 600,000 Pennsylvanians work in the tourism industry, drawing paychecks totaling $18 billion.

Great! Maybe they can use this money to build scenic billboards to put on the sides of all of the water containers the gas drillers have along the First Fork of Sinnemahoning and Pine Creek to make the area look wilder.

Might just as well light the 5K on fire. It will be wasted in Potter County.

I wonder if some of the money can be used to make the Potter County Visitor's Center look like someplace you might actually want to go into.
