$8 million loan awarded to replace roof of East Huntingdon business park

Renatta Signorini

The roof of an East Huntingdon business park will be replaced through an $8 million low-interest loan.

The roof is leaking in several places of the 2-million-square-foot site that previously housed the Sony plant, according to state Rep. Justin Walsh. The building is being repurposed by RIDC Westmoreland to house multiple tenants.

Funding is through the Business in Our Sites program by the Commonwealth Financing Authority.

“This new roof will make the property more marketable and draw further interest,” Walsh, R-Rostraver, said in a statement.

More than 1,000 people work at the park. Tenants include envelope manufacturer Cenveo, Siemens and Westmoreland County Community College’s Advanced Technology Center for workforce-development programs.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
