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.
Hot, hot, heated week. West Chester passed a plastic ban to mixed emotions and possible legal action, Teva-expands its West Chester presence and a big win for affordable housing. Plus, the Turk’s Head Music festival. Ready? Let’s get started.
Welcome to the weekend. Rain is gone for now. Development updates this week on the Daily Local site, the Agway site and a first look at what’s planned for Rubenstein’s. Also, what to do if you see a spotted latternfly and borough officials give up the bottled water. Grab your stainless steel reusable water bottle and let’s get started.
We recently got back from a week down at the beach and one of the things I noticed, other than the pre-fourth crowds were blessedly light, was all our drinks came with paper straws. Which got me wondering, what’s happening with West Chester’s single-use plastic ban? Turns out quite a bit.
Even when it seems every last person is out of town, there is still a lot going on. This week we recap the crazy storm, see what’s happening with West Chester’s plastic bag ban, and reveal more scary health code violations, including our favorite sushi place. [Insert sad face.] Grab the last of the red, white and blue M&Ms and let’s get started.
Rain, rain go away, come again mid-July. This week we’re talking flooding, movie making and superstars to be. Read while sampling your 2 oz. of beer.
The summer job outlook, a new green initiative, and an awesome aerial video of the borough, plus the best place to get crabs for your Memorial Day cookout. Summer is unofficially here. Soak it all in perhaps, with a drink with an umbrella in it.
