 Blight Remediation
Armstrong County's Blight Remediation Program helps address the problem of run down and dilapidated properties within the county.  The county initiated the development of this plan in response to concerns about blight issues which were raised during a series of Town Hall Meetings held by the Armstrong County Board of Commissioners in the fall of 2016.
In late 2018 and early 2019 several vacant properties were demolished within the boroughs of Leechburg and Kittanning with assistance from the county.

Transportation Planning
Because we recognize the role transportation has in connecting communities and supporting economic development, we coordinate capital improvements ranging in scope from operational and safety improvements to the SR 28 and US 422 corridors to the rehabilitation of municipal owned bridges. We also understand the importance of alternative modes of transportation, and we will continuously work with communities to identify funding opportunities for pedestrian and bicycle improvements.
