" Kutztown Made
for Walking "
By Sandy Green, Kutztown Community Partnership
On April 22, 2021, the Commonwealth Financing Authority
awarded the Borough of Kutztown a $674,844.00 grant for Multimodal
Transportation projects that will focus on making Kutztown a
walkable community and developing " streets as places, " which can
mean the difference between a monotonous route and a destination
people want to return to.
Borough Manager Gabriel Khalife said that the grant will be
used " to assist with improvements and enhancements to make the
Borough more walkable and accessible for pedestrian traffic and ADA
compliance, and to connect pedestrian traffic to the community. "
Kutztown Community Partnership (KCP) partnered with the
Borough to make Kutztown a safe and walkable community by
creating an Art and History Self-Guided Walking route. The goal of
this project is to promote walking in Kutztown and engage a diverse
set of community partners to help enhance the social infrastructure
and to leverage existing visual assets.
Pennsylvania State Sen. Judy Schwank commended Borough
officials for " their vision and foresight to pursue a project to make
an already friendly Borough more welcoming for residents and
visitors alike, " and Pennsylvania State Rep. Gary Day was pleased
to see the award go to Kutztown as he thinks it is " one of the most
walkable boroughs in Berks. "
To celebrate this accomplishment, Kutztown Community
Partnership hosted the " Kutztown Made for Walking " Sunset Walk,
a walk and networking outdoor event.
The 64 people who registered for the event walked
through Kutztown to a scenic view overlooking the
town. The event was to create an enjoyable walk
through our town and end up with one of the
most beautiful views in Kutztown. It provided an
opportunity for the community to walk together,
talk together, and hang out together.
Participants enjoyed a sampling of wine from
Weathered Vineyards, cheese from Haven Farmstead
and the amazing view from the property of Joel,
Dakota and Jack Seidel.
