Titusville Redevelopment Authority, in cooperation with National Fuel, was approved for $42,544 in grant funding to install 1,547 linear feet of natural gas pipeline that will bring the Titusville Opportunity Park into compliance with the Public Utility Commission (PUC), as the PUC requires each building in the business park to be metered separately. This project will connect the 14 buildings at the park to the main gas line located just outside of the park. The project will retain more than 300 jobs in 18 businesses within the park, and will provide for the growth of the park, bringing more businesses and jobs to the area. The total project cost is $85,088.
