Project Background

A few months ago the Borough contacted The SBCC and Slate Belt Rising asking for
suggestions to improve the downtown area, some of the buildings and store fronts were in dire
need of sprucing up. The buildings which feature beautiful architecture were in need of some
TLC. Laura McClain, Executive. Director, Slate Belt Chamber of Commerce reached out to local
real estate brokers. Faith Sarisky, Realtor/Broker, of Realty Solutions PA, in Upper Mt Bethel
Township, immediately knew she wanted to get involved and started contacting fellow real
estate brokers, who also agreed to be on board. Faith, who now spearheads the project began
contacting the building's owners to ask permission to paint the building facade. Faith posted a
sign on the building with her business name and immediately thought it would be a great
opportunity for other businesses to sponsor to not only gain recognition for their businesses, but
it would also help in giving the buildings a welcoming appearance. #Beautify Bangor just
took off. Businesses started calling inquiring about sponsorship, artists called who were
interested in painting and residents wanted to volunteer their time. It's been incredible to say
the least considering the uncertainty we are all facing today." said Faith. “We want folks to think
of Bangor as an artist destination. Located just 1 1/2 hours from NYC and 1 ½ hours from
Philly, Bangor offers many wineries, breweries, eateries outdoor recreation such as the
appalachian trail and delaware river. We are a lovely historic bedroom community located at
the foothills of the Poconos. Come visit Bangor PA. It will be worth the drive
