Hermitage Town Center Study

Community-Based Planning Project


The Hermitage Town Center Study is a community-based planning project, sponsored by the Mercer County Regional Planning Commission and the City of Hermitage. The goal of the project is to develop a master plan for the area that will lead to the establishment of a memorable town center for the City of Hermitage; one that creates a unique identity based on a walkable, mixed-use community.

Project Focus


The project is focused on the intersection of Route 18 and Route 62 (State St.), but will extend out beyond that to include to a wider area in an effort to foster connections to the surrounding neighborhoods. The project was funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation as a follow-up to the Route 18 North Study completed in 2001 that preceded the widening of the road through the City of Hermitage.
