Well, fans of Everhart Park, it is finally our turn. The Friends of Everhart Park and the Borough of West Chester are coming together to bring you that playground you have been waiting for and this time they are welcoming, encouraging even, your feedback.
Could it be happening? A new entertainment complex that tailors to both adults and kids? Plus, changes to garage fees, Borough Council looks to add a discrimination policy, and what’s planned for the old Yale Electric Lighting building. Ok, it’s time. Grab that pumpkin spice latte and let’s get going,
Action is heating up downtown with several exciting new businesses announcing their impending arrival, and dare I say it, construction coming to end on Gay Street. Plus, rideshare rules go into effect and why football Rustin is giving up its home games. It’s good to be back. Let’s get started.
To be fair, that was the answer from the Magic 8 Ball, the experts are much less certain. We have however, been off to a really good start. The question now is, will it last?
I’m not going to lie, this week has been kind of ugly. There’s been armed-robberies and racial comments, resignations and more street closures. However, West Chester’s trees got some good news, more improvements are on their way to downtown and school starts Monday, so it’s not all bad. Let’s see what’s happened.
In order to protect the urban canopy, West Chester wants to change the Borough Code. While, it’s asking property-owners to help out, this time it’s proposing kicking in a little too. An important read, if you have trees.
Last week seemed so quiet and this week, wham, we are back. West Chester Police Department wants body cameras, changes to the tree ordinance (if you have a big tree, pay attention.) The fully functioning window trend is catching on with downtown bars. Plus, good deeds, warnings, and we say goodbye to a West Chester fixture. Grab some caffeine and let’s get going.
Break out the welcome mat. Governor Wolf makes a visit and weighs in on West Chester’s plastic ban while, downtown gets ready to host its pinnacle summer event. Plus, the street tree fund is out of money and a list of road closures for Saturday. Grab one of those bike race beers and let’s get started.
You’re in West Chester for the day – what’s your “don’t miss” thing to do? This question was recently posed to a group of West Chester moms and I loved the responses – (espresso martini? Yes, please). Anyway, I thought I would share.
WCASD gets ready for school while, a couple big name businesses get ready to close. New health department violations (one local eatery racked up more citations than the prison), more awards for Andiario and have you seen Mud Row yet? Grab an iced tea, it’s August. Let’s Go.
