Downtown Hershey Association Receives Premier Project Award

The Dauphin County Commissioners and Dauphin County Planning Commission recognized the Downtown Hershey Association with a Premier Project Award for the implementation of “Downtown Hershey: A Plan for Continued Revitalization.”

The Premier Project Award is intended “to acknowledge professional leadership in creating projects that aid communities as they make planning decisions, promote smart growth, and spark revitalization” according to these five project guidelines: effectiveness, ease of replication, community involvement/partnerships, smart growth, and comprehensive planning.

Since the completion of “Downtown Hershey: A Continued Plan for Revitalizationin January 2015, the Downtown Hershey Association has implemented a full Life on Chocolate event series, completed several organizational initiatives, and is supporting physical improvements downtown in 2017. The organization’s accomplishments would not be possible without key partnerships, collaboration, and the efforts of our many dedicated volunteers. Visit for more information.
