The Shamokin Area Partnership for Revitalization, a joint effort between SEDA-COG and the City of Shamokin, is pursuing various revitalization efforts within the City of Shamokin including the development of an Implementation Plan for Economic Revitalization called “Plan Go Shamokin.” It is an initiative especially focused on spurring greater economic activity in the city’s downtown.

The outcome of the 6-month planning process will be a 5-year action plan with a targeted set of implementation strategies and projects. The plan is focusing on identifying truly tangible and transformation recommendations.

The Plan Go Shamokin project is being led by the firm Stromberg/Garrigan & Associates, who was retained by the Partnership to facilitate the planning process, including public engagement and plan preparation. In addition, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Environmental Justice is undertaking a coordinated effort focused on Rebuilding Our Community. A meeting will be held the evening of Tuesday, February 11th from 4:00PM to 6:30PM at Mother Cabrini Church Basement, 201 N. Shamokin Street, Shamokin, PA 17872. The community is strongly encouraged to attend. RSVPs should be submitted to

Project updates and notifications of future meetings are available at and the GoShamokin Facebook page.
