(09/07/2012) - On June 13th at JR's Restaurant over 40 people attended the initial Swissvale Business Roundtable co-sponsored by Swissvale Borough and the Enterprise Zone serving Braddock, North Braddock, Rankin and Swissvale. Plans for business district revitalization were presented by Klavon Design Associates, Inc., consultant to the Borough. Information on financial incentives available through the Enterprise Zone was discussed and distributed.
According to Mayor Deneen Swartzwelder, "We were very pleased with the turnout. We have been working on plans and strategies to improve the central business district along Washington Street, Noble Street and Monongahela Avenue. We have funding to begin work on Washington this year and we're seeking funding for improvements throughout the business district. New and improved residential properties have taken place in the Kopp Glass area. Funding for business improvement is available through the Enterprise Zone."
