JOHNSTOWN, CAMBRIA COUNTY— The Roxbury Bandshell Preservation Alliance is hoping that a rink that sits just a few yards away will be relocated.

“It was first proposed to move the rink up on Roxbury Hill but homeowners raised some concerns,” said Tim Burns, solicitor for the Roxbury Bandshell Preservation Alliance.  “We began looking elsewhere and it was suggested to the area next to Sandyvale Cemetery.”

A number of residents are concerned over the proposed move of the rink and said it wouldn’t get used in that location.  Burns said the move was for safety of spectators plus the rink is in need of restoration.

“We can’t move the Bandshell… both can co-exist just not that close together.”

City Council and the Johnstown Planning Commission have to both agree on the move. Burns said if they all did agree the move wouldn’t happen for at least another year.
