In cooperation with the Keystone Job Corp Security Training Program, the City Police Department, and the Chamber’s Downtown Committee, we are happy to offer a “CPTED” Survey to downtown merchants. This acronym stands for “Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design,” which includes a nationally recognized set of strategies designed to deter crime through control of the physical environment. Please take a moment to complete this important survey. 
Come experience the many foods and flavors found downtown during the upcoming September 4th First Friday.  Events include the season’s last Farmer’s Market, live music performed by the Sterling Koch Duo, a “Literary Cake Decorating Contest” at the Hazleton Area Public Library; a walking tour highlighting the downtown's landmark eateries and bodegas; a “Meet the Artist” exhibit at the Dragonfly Café; a Ceramic, Watercolor, and Quilt show at the Hazleton Art League, a book signing by Hazleton’s poet laureate Maria Jacketti, a Do Terra Essential Oils Demo at Frankie's Pizzeria, a professional wrestling event (free) at The Sanctuary (followed by live music by Right Hand Cure); free tours of the Hazleton Active Adult Center, and Hazleton POWER! will be showing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory outdoors in the Pocket Park (with popcorn). There is something for everyone, so save the date and come downtown!
