Design Committee

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: 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.
