Pennsylvania Wilds Honors For County Leader

May 24th, 2024

A Potter County official has been recognized with one of nine 2024 “Champions of the Pennsylvania Wilds” awards. Will Hunt, director of planning, community development and GIS services, is this year’s Pennsylvania Wilds Member of the Year. The honor recognizes his work in supporting the outdoor recreation economy and nature tourism in northwestern Pennsylvania.

In announcing the award, the judges described him as “an advocate of outdoor recreation and preservation of the character of the Pennsylvania Wilds.” Among his achievements are an ATV Task Force bringing together regional partners and stakeholders to ensure a thoughtful balance of outdoor recreation with the landscape; a land use ordinance to incorporate regional design standards, ensuring the preservation of area dark skies and natural beauty; and leadership of the Pennsylvania Wilds Planning Team, which brings together county governments and other economic development and conservation partners to work on regional planning related to outdoor recreation development.
