The Design Committee is responsible for the streetscape of Downtown Selinsgrove. Through facade grants awarded to Selinsgrove as part of the Main Street Manager Program, the Design Committee has been able to assist downtown businesses and property owners to update the facades of our historical buildings. These improvements help to enhance the aesthetics of our lovely downtown. This assistance is available by application submitted to our Main Street Managers, which is reviewed and implemented by the Design Committee. Examples of such improvements are: Emma’s Food for Life, A. Dustin Kline Salon, 30-32 S. Market St. (the former Iva Jean Shipe residence), Isabella, Bella’s Pizza, to name a few. More recently, Selinsgrove Projects has teamed up with Uniquely Sakura to restore the Snyder County Trust clock located outside of First National Bank.
Economic Restructuring Committee
The Economic Restructuring Committee is responsible for bringing business to downtown that would be a good fit for both the business owner and the business district and promoting sustainability in those ventures.
Discovery Trails Committee
The Discovery Trails Committee focuses more on the river and outdoor activities that can be done in the borough. Their major project right now is to develop water trails that can be utilized on the river to see the various plants and wildlife as well as the river’s distinct nuances in general.
The Promotions Committee assists with marketing and promotional endeavors.
