State Rep. Zach Mako, R-183rd, and state Sen. Lisa Boscola, D-18th, have announced that $86,450 in Local Share Account grants were approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority for North Catasauqua Borough.

LSA grants support economic development, job training, community improvement and public interest projects through gaming funds under Act 71 of 2004. These specific grants come from Monroe County, which funds projects in Monroe and its contiguous counties.

North Catasauqua was awarded the grant to improve the area around the Delaware and Lehigh Trail along Main Street in the borough. More specifically, the funding will be used to construct a retaining wall to create suitable public space above the entrance to the trailhead.
