To provide sustainable leadership, direction,and support for the successful, efficient revitalization and long-term success of downtown Hazleton.
Believing that progress is dependent upon Public-Private Partnerships, the Alliance includes representation from the City of Hazleton, the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce, CAN DO, the CAN DO Community Foundation, the DHD (DeAngelo/Hayden Partnership), Penn State Hazleton, Luzerne County Community College, Lackawanna College, the Society of Hispanic Professionals of the Hazleton Area, and other leaders of the community. We realize that in order for this effort to succeed, we must share the rebuilding effort with all members of our community— including those residents and business owners that have been here for generations, our youth who have all the energy and are seeking new opportunities, and the hard-working newcomers who are now making Hazleton their home.
Downtown Hazleton is a strong, competitive, and prosperous center for multicultural business growth, education, and entrepreneurship within Northeastern Pennsylvania that is enriched by a mix of new and existing retail shops and specialty services, casual and upscale dining and entertainment, and cultural institutions, events, and programs.
