Citing Success of Trestle to Trestle, County to Pass on Additional Riverfront Task Force With City of Warren

May 8, 2023

WARREN, Pa. – Citing happiness among residents and businesses in regard to the progress of the Trestle to Trestle Task Force, Warren County and the City of Warren will not be entering a proposed joint task force to oversee Warren’s riverfront redevelopment.

“I had multiple conversations with people at the chamber and riverfront business owners,” Commissioner Jeff Eggleston said. “I contacted the city and let them know that we’re going to stick with things the way they are.”

Eggleston noted that the Trestle to Trestle Task Force, organized by Jim Decker and the Warren County Chamber of Business and Industry to help facilitate feedback and plan for the riverfront’s future in the City of Warren between the east and west trestles in Warren, has received positive reviews.

Eggleston had also indicated during the commissioners’ previous work session on April 24 that it was “very possible this won’t happen.”

“Everybody is happy with what Jim Decker and the Chamber are doing,” Eggleston said. “We’re going to stick with that.”

The proposed task force between the city and county would have simply been another planning and coordinating outlet for the remainder of 2023.

“They’re (city) looking at opportunities, we’re looking at opportunities and we’ll continue to keep our efforts in line,” said Commissioner Tricia Durbin.

Warren City Council will be hosting a work session at the foot of Liberty Street to discuss riverfront development at 6 p.m. on Monday (May 8).

In the event of inclement weather, the session will be held at the City of Warren municipal building.
