Bridge Grant application Open May 6th 2019 - Closes September 6th 2019
Pa. Act 13, the shale gas impact fee legislation, provides the Potter County Commissioners $40,000 annually in restricted-use funds to assist local municipalities for repairing or replacing bridges. In order to distribute it fairly and equally, the Board of Commissioners decided that municipalities should submit an application, which will be reviewed by a committee consisting of the three Commissioners and representatives of Municipal Governments of Potter County. Specific criteria have been established to evaluate each application.
In 2017, Potter County partnered with U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Potter County Conservation District, Potter County Planning and the Pa. Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP), to sample 47 randomly selected drinking water wells to assess the ground water across the entire county. This opportunity came as Potter County received Pa. Dept. of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Grant funds which allowed us to take advantage of an opportunity to understand what is native to our water sources and to assess the impacts land use practices have had on our ground water. The link below can provide more details to the project and its results as they are available.
Stormwater Plan Approved. Pa. Act 167 requires each county to develop standards to prevent flooding, soil erosion, road damage and related problems from improperly directed stormwater. Townships and boroughs must administer the ordinance locally. Copies of the Potter County Stormwater Management Plan are available by contacting the Planning Office at 274-8254. The plan can also be accessed on the internet by clicking here
Potter County Planning Commission meets every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 3:00 p.m. in the Planning Department located in the Gunzburger building, 1 North Main Street, Coudersport. Additional information for the Commission can be found here.
