The communities of Honesdale, Hawley and White Mills have been approved for participation in the Pennsylvania Heritage Communities Program, a local heritage planning and implementation process involving a number of communities along the PA Route 6 Corridor.
The Heritage Communities Program enhances participating communities as destinations for non-intrusive tourism on the scenic Route 6 Corridor by building on the unique characteristics and resources in each community. A local Stakeholders Group, comprised of local officials, agency representatives and residents is working with the PA Route 6 Heritage Corporation,  its planning consultant, The EADS Group and Northeast Coordinator, the Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance in the development of an action-oriented strategy for Honesdale, Hawley, White Mills and the surrounding area.
  A Community Workshop has been scheduled to introduce the Heritage Communities Program and to receive public input on the direction of the program locally, tourism opportunities and perceived needs to enhance the area as a destination.  The workshop will be held on Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 6 p.m. in the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce’s Community Room.
 All residents and others who are interested in the future of the community and tourism are invited and encouraged to participate in the workshop.
