The Clinton County Economic Partnership proudly presents our 2021 Community Profile and Membership Directory.
The Partnership strives to make our county a better place to work, live and recreate. Certainly, 2020 was a year different from all others. You should know that the Partnership staff and our Operating Board continues to work hard on your behalf as we take steps into 2021.
Our county has seen several recent accomplishments and we have a number of upcoming projects. The initiatives listed below, among others, are playing and will play an important role in moving our area forward.
*Leading manufacturer First Quality Tissue moved ahead with full production at its third tissue manufacturing machine and building in Castanea Township and continues to look ahead to additional growth opportunities. Nearby in Bald Eagle Township, Croda, Inc. and Avery Dennison Performance Polymers continue to invest in expanded product lines and facility upgrades.
*Terrapin Care Station completed an expansion that more than doubled the size of its location in Pine Creek Township, and closed the calendar year with a virtual job fair to hire 30 more people to produce medical marijuana.
*Pre-work continues for the planned Renovo Energy Center power plant project. If all falls into place, construction could begin at the former Renovo Industrial Park in 2021.
*We will continue to see enhancements to the local health care scene in 2021, with Geisinger’s new medical clinic in Lock Haven, and ongoing investments in the operations of UPMC Lock Haven.
*New business start-ups by a number of retail, service and commercial ventures are helping to shine a positive light on our county and spark additional investments.
*The growth of outdoor recreational pursuits – including strong interest in four-wheeling and trail races – coupled with more traditional exploits such as hunting, fishing, and simply getting away from the bustle of more urban areas, continue to make our area a sought-after place to spend time.
*And, we begin 2021 with approval from the state – supported by Clinton County government, Keystone Central School District, and Lamar Township – of a seven-year extension of the Keystone Opportunity Zone designation for three vacant lots at the Partnership-owned Lamar Township Business Park, giving us a key recruiting tool for future economic development and job creation.
