Port Allegany Part 2:

Port Allegany Part 2: Community keeps on moving

PORT ALLEGANY, Pa. - While the community of Port Allegany has experienced the challenges of the ongoing recession, leaders of the town said the friendly, outgoing nature of the residents continue to make it a nice place to live.

Borough manager Dick Kallenborn and Judy Taylor, president of the borough council, recently shared their thoughts about a community that has continued to move ahead with projects despite an economic downturn that has affected the entire nation.

It would be nice if we could get the planning board/commission in Port Allegany to try a "think tank" approach again to see what could be done to improve Main Street in Port Allegany. We all really need to think o/s the box - beyond retail shops to fill our disappearing main street businesses. I'd like to see the Canoe Place bought through some grant money (if one could be applied for & there is $ out there for it)-- then utilize it for the IU9/Seneca Voc. Tech School. Their BCO class could fix it up, the culinary arts program could run a restaurant (like the one in Wellsville, NY that ASC does), the music program could provide occasional dinner theaters, and they could start a hotel management program. All these things provide after high school employability to our young people who cannot afford to go to college. Just a thought & maybe I am a dreamer but it is better than letting the building get torn down, fall down, or become another eyesore on Main Street.
