Have you ever felt so strongly about something that waiting, seems like a mistake? That is what Gillian Alicea was feeling this summer when she decided to launch a write-in campaign for the Borough Council’s 6th Ward.
Happy October. Fall activities are everywhere. West Chester Co-op is presented an opportunity for a grocery that just may be too good to pass up. Plus, West Chester’s new signage program, the latest area crime data, and seven school cafeterias were visited by the health inspector last month. See how they fared.
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.
