A contingent of Altoona-area leaders plans to visit Berks County to elaborate on a privately led revitalization and law enforcement effort in Blair County that has won praise from Gov. Tom Corbett.
A visit in the opposite direction – Berks officials going to Blair – was one of five strategy points that emerged from last month’s crime summit.
Officials in both areas said that visit was still likely to happen. But Randy Feathers, named by Corbett’s office as a facilitator in getting the two communities together, said the Blair-to-Berks visit would happen first. It is scheduled for Feb. 21.
