After months of canceled meetings, I was beginning to wonder if the West Chester Rail Restoration Service Committee was still a thing. Then I got an email inviting me to experience the proposed electric commuter concept firsthand.
All aboard! Last week I caught a ride on the shiny new West Chester Pop-Up Metro, the electric train promising to connect the Borough to SEPTA’s Regional Rail System. The only problem? It’s still in central PA on demo mode. A look at what it’s going to take to get it here and running. Plus, Public Works is monitoring an oil spill that discharged into a nearby stream. The amount of oil spilled is unknown. And it’s a wild world out there. How to get a wildflower meadow of your own.
Perhaps you’ve noticed, the streets of West Chester are in shambles. A combination of winter grind and infrastructure projects have left the roads a mess. Well, don't worry, West Chester Public Works Department has a plan.
So. much. stuff. Porchfest returns next week with over 70 bands and 50 porches. What you need to know. Plus, have you seen West Chester roads? A breakdown of the repaving plan. WCU graduation, Aldi’s opening date - and a potentially exciting new gastropub coming to Market Street. Who’s ready? Let’s catch up.
This week PennDOT held a public meeting and outlined their $2 million plans for High Street. See what will change at each intersection from Miner St. to Rosedale Ave.
Road work is planned for streets all over West Chester. Is your street next? Check the list.
