CONNEAUT LAKE — Plans for the next phase of a revitalization project in downtown Conneaut Lake will be discussed at a public meeting during which Pennsylvania Department of Transportation officials will review the project.

The project is work on Water Street from Second to Fourth streets. The first phase was on Water Street from First to Second Street.

Bill Eldridge, chairman of the Conneaut Lake Community Development Committee, which is spearheading the revitalization project, announced the meeting will be held at the town hall at a date to be announced.

Eldridge also said the committee is hoping to obtain another grant from PennDOT for $275,000 for work on the project. The grant would be a 20 percent match from the borough, meaning the borough would have to pay $55,000.

He previously had said work might start in May.
