PIERPONT REVITALIZATION

VISION for Pierpont

Pierpont is an attractive, vibrant small rural community of industrious people surrounded by rivers, agricultural and forested landscapes with a strong social and economic center.


COMMUNITY SURVEY.The results of the Pierpont Community Survey conducted in June, 2018 were shared with the community on September 4th at the Pierpont Volunteer Fire Department red building at 7:30pm, following the regular Pierpont Township Trustee Meeting at 6:30pm.  The survey had an excellent response rate of 30% with over 200 Pierpont residents and landowners answering questions. The Pierpont Revitalization Committee has analyzed the survey and will be presenting a vision for Pierpont based on survey findings. Residents overwhelmingly valued the small town rural atmosphere of Pierpont and its strong sense of community. The volunteer fire department, US Post Office, Pymatuning Valley Schools, and local churches were given high importance ratings. Respondents also placed high value on living close to the natural environment, the West and East Branches of the Ashtabula rivers, Pierpont’s agricultural and forested landscape, nearness to Lake Erie and Pymatuning Lake and closeness to family and friends. A number of people wrote comments in the survey margins that Pierpont was a great place to live, to raise a family, and to retire in. Some respondents were new to Pierpont in the last ten years, others have lived in Pierpont 20 to 30 years, and others indicated they were life-long residents with grandparents that settled Pierpont. Respondents’ vision for Pierpont is an attractive community with a strong social-economic center. Ninety-percent wanted more local shopping opportunities and 76% thought that lack of destination services in downtown Pierpont was a problem. More than half of respondents claimed they would definitely or likely use a convenience food store, a full service grocery, a diner or restaurant, banking services, a hardware store, a beer-wine-spirits store, a bakery and a general merchandise store. Respondents expressed high levels of concern for the inadequacy of Pierpont’s infrastructure including lack of access to reliable high-speed internet service and lack of a sewer system downtown to draw new businesses and expand existing businesses. The high cost of repair and replacement of sewer systems, aging housing stocks and the number of poor quality buildings throughout the township were also considered problems.   There is widespread agreement that Pierpont is a great place to live and there is a shared desire to keep the community strong and vibrant. This means there is a need to renew and strengthen Pierpont’s legacy of economic vibrancy by rebuilding the social-economic center. Pierpont residents are encouraged to attend the meeting to support the search for solutions and the revitalization of Pierpont.
