Holy, disappointment, Batman! We finally got word on what is coming to the corner of Gay and High Streets. And well, it's not great.

This week we are staying positive as we watch that glass fill back up (and to be clear by glass, I mean the borough's coffers). Plus, two big park reveals, WCU goes home, high school students finally get to eat lunch - and what exactly is Porchfest? I love this time of year. Who's ready? Let's catch up.
I have some good news and I have some bad news. The good news is long-time West Chester coffee roasters Turk’s Head Roasters are planning to open their first shop in the borough.

Plastic bags are out in West Goshen, Marshall Square has a new playground and it’s Mother’s Day weekend. Have a happy one, moms! Who’s ready? Let’s catch up.
