Public Scoping and Development Mapping for the City of Warren, PA: Eco-Tourism, Cultural Heritage and Economic Diversity

“Public Scoping and Development Mapping for the City of Warren, PA: Eco-Tourism, Cultural Heritage and Economic Diversity” is a teaching/applied-research project that provides Pitt-Bradford students with applied learning experiences through campus-community research partnerships, and that contributes to tangible, outcomes-based sustainable community development capacity. This project is designed to continue the ATP work already accomplished here at UPB (the GPS mapping project), and to expand the impact of ATP vis-à-vis UPB by identifying further uses for the work so far implemented, and by identifying new partners in a way that contributes to regional capacity and planning and development discourse. This project will yield no fewer than two community-based presentations, in addition to the various meetings scheduled between project partners, participating faculty, the community, and UPB students. Specifically, the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will partner with the City of Warren, PA, Pennsylvania Kinzua Pathways (PKP), and Leadership Warren (BOOM!) to begin to inventory, scope and frame the sustainable development components of the city’s soon to be updated development plan, as well as to further the work of PKP and BOOM!.
