COMMUNITY IMPACT

The Coal Street project transformed a dilapidated 30-acre park into a regional sports and medical complex. Coal Street Park, located in WilkesBarre, Pennsylvania, was extensively rehabilitated, injecting new life into one of the city’s most highly trafficked roadways, while creating an attractive entrance to the downtown district and providing excellent public recreation offerings. Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton stated that “the renovation…is a great example of how municipalities like WilkesBarre, working in cooperation with county, state, and federal levels of government and the private sector can provide outstanding offerings for their residents.”
