FOREST CITY - "TRAIL TOWN" PRESENTATION
Forest City Regional School auditorium was the setting for an enthusiastic and informative presentation offered by Lynn Conrad & Deb McNamara, representatives from the Rail Trail Council of NEPA. The link below will take you to a guide to begin the process of establishing Forest City as a "Trail Town". Opening remarks and thanks to all those who participated were offered by Dr. Jessica Aquilina, FCR Superintendent. and Joy Zazzera, representing the GFCBA.
"With the intent to capture Trail-based tourism this guide is designed to help leaders in these communities, these “Trail Towns,” take advantage of the economic opportunity that rides or walks into town. It will help transform your town into a more inviting and memorable tourist destination, and make your town a better place for your own residents to live, work and play."
The Trail Towns Guide will take you through an organization process; help you work with or create a local group focused on downtown revitalization; give you the tools to identify what your town needs to become a Trail Town; give you ideas as you start your town’s revitalization; and give you tips on how to make your hard work last over time.
The evening was sponsored by the Rail Trail Council, Forest City Regional School, the Greater Forest City Business Alliance and Forest City Borough. The event also provided an opportunity to unveil the new websites for the GFCBA - (visitforestcitypa.com) and Forest City Borough - (forestcityborough.com)
Those attending were entertained by the FCR Band & Chorus and had an opportunity to purchase FCR Spirit items, baked goods and raffle tickets. Refreshments were provided by local businesses.

Susquehanna County Attractions sign &
Greater Forest City Business Alliance area map.
The Endless Mountains Heritage Region (EMHR) sponsored the production of a Susquehanna County Heritage Attractions sign, which included a map of businesses provided by the Greater Forest City Business Alliance (GFCBA). These signs put Forest City and Susquehanna County's heritage and outdoor recreation attractions “on the map” for both residents and visitors. The sign was installed near the intersection of Main and Center streets in Forest City on Nov. 1, 2016. The event was made possible through a unique collaboration of several agencies and organizations.
A brief reception with refreshments, hosted by the borough through donations, was held prior to the official unveiling of both signs at 11 am. The event featured public remarks from our key project partners, as well as local and state representatives. There was coverage by local media outlets also on hand for the event.
