Preserving a community’s assets

While we appreciate the concerns of the Pike County Commissioners regarding cost, sometimes the price tag of doing what seems necessary and expedient is simply too high to pay. We suggest that the commissioners ask themselves what impact their present plan will have on the community and that they continue to explore other options to find an affordable way to meet the needs of the court system and county government. We believe the borough’s ARB should recommend against the removal of the Kenworthey House and the proposed design for a big box building at 104 Broad Street, and we urge the borough council to oppose it as well.
