Coudersport Borough seeking volunteers for Adopt a Block program

Coudersport Borough seeking volunteers for Adopt a Block program

The borough of Coudersport is initiating an “Adopt a Block” program similar to the Adopt a Highway Program instituted by PennDOT.

Where PennDOT normally requires an individual or group to keep free of litter a minimum of two miles of roadway, the borough would ask that only one block be cared for per-person or group. In addition to litter removal, it is desired that volunteers also be responsible for weed removal and control.

The borough is seeking business owners, civic groups, citizens and anyone who cares about Coudersport and Potter County.

Whether Coudersport is your original hometown or your adopted hometown, consider being a volunteer for the borough. A more attractive Coudersport means more people will want to visit, property value will increase, visitors will seek lodging and spend more money here, helping to increase economic opportunity. Sidewalks marred with cigarette butts and other litter and overgrown weeds will attract no one.

According to organizer and Clara Township resident Tony Winters, who is working on the project with the borough, “Good things are coming to Coudersport”. Government and the private sector working together can do great things. Be part of this positive change, because a small investment of time and effort will yield big dividends.

The Adopt a Block program is in its beginning stages. Tony said he hopes to get it started as soon as the weather clears.

For more information or to volunteer, contact Tony at 814-544-7140, 814-203-7912 or email awinters310@gmail.com.

Who will be responsible if someone is injured while pulling weeds, etc. on my property/sidewalk that I did not give permission to be on or working on? Will the volunteers be bonded or provide signed waivers to every homeowner? What if they damage my private property? The town is surely not going to pay.

to the poster at 12:04. No one should have to be on your property picking up trash or pulling weeds. YOU should be doing that yourself!!!!!

My assumption is that it is just going to be the BUSINESS District.

While the intention is good issues must be considered. Correct, everyone should maintain their own property. If we are talking about main street and the business district why don't people on probation pitch in to help? Getting people to show up might be a problem ......but since the county offices are downtown there should be a way to make this happen. It could work 2 ways....show up for community services or spend your time in the potter county jail where you will now do that community service in an orange jumpsuit...hmmmm....make your choice. If we are worried that people won't put forward a decent effort then chain gang them to the parking meters. Get a little in return for what they already cost the taxpayers.
