The snow may still be coming, but West Chester Park and Rec is planning again. See which popular borough events are coming back. I finally figured out where at least some of the Stream Protection money is going, a local kid gets called up to the majors and oh yea, West Chester has a new mayor. Grab yourself something hot and let’s do this.
Work in hospitality or retail? Chester County wants to get you back to work. Plus, candidates step up to be the next week West Chester Mayor – see who – and Stove and Tap’s much anticipated grand opening. It’s February 12 – snow is on the ground. Love is in the air. Let’s get started.
The debate is on over when Mayor Herrin should resign. I break down the hubbub. Plus, a first look at the new Greystone elementary and is West Goshen planning for a new apartment complex at the site of the Quality Inn? And, downtown West Chester opens yet another restaurant. Grab yourself an “adult” hot chocolate and let’s cozy up over some controversy.
Last month the West Chester Area Council of Governments launched its West Chester Area Clean Energy Future campaign. The campaign is made up of four community engagement modules designed to walk constituents through lessening, then greening their energy consumption. Think of this as the first step toward shrinking the town’s energy use – one resident at a time.
Well, 2021 is finally here and so far I have to say it is not living up to the hype. In West Chester things have started with a bang – literally, as a shooting is reported at the Hookah Lounge. On the upside we have the latest on Chester County’s COVID-19 vaccination plan, restaurants are open again and Side Bar has four new winter cocktails to smooth the transition. Who’s ready for 2021?
Protect the streets or pay the bills? Borough Council was faced with some tough choices this week as budgetary woes came into direct conflict with police needs. Plus, a bunch of ways to pay it forward this holiday season and Saloon 151 aims to make you merry with their new cocktails in a can. Grab your drink of choice and let’s say goodbye to 2020.
Lanternfly tape is popping all over the Borough, and while, all those dead little bodies might make you feel good, is it doing more harm than good? A West Chester horticultural manager lobbies for an outright ban. Plus, follow these two best practices, if you are going to use it.
The Borough takes a first look at the 2021 budget and a potential tax increase. See how much. Plus, West Chester to get another fountain, a Gay Street closure extension, and everybody gets ready to go back to learning. School not so much. Soak it in these are your last days of summer.
This week we are talking people behaving badly. High Street Caffe is open again after actions by its owner led to a mass staff exodus earlier this summer. Also, drilling on the Mariner East 2 pipeline is halted as crews work to assess the damage of a fluid spill. Plus, Kooma’s expanding, and where West Chester falls among the best places to live in PA. #1 in my book, not in theirs. Grab a late August lemonade – spiked if you’re associated with High Street Caffe – and let’s do this.
It’s getting hot in here. As Governor Wolf restricts indoor dining, we get an update on West Chester’s plan to close Gay Street, West Chester Area School District dashes hopes for a full fall return, and Borough Council confronts a new student housing development. Ready? Let’s get started.
