Phoenixville Education Center closer to a reality

The proposed Phoenixville Education Center, to be located at Franklin Commons on the borough's North Side, is one step closer to becoming a reality. Two universities have agreed to offer programs starting as early as Sept. 07.

From the article in the 3/1/07 issue of The Phoenix

Neumann College, with its main campus in Aston, and Reading's Alvernia College, which has additional off-campus programs in Pottsville and Philadelphia, have both agreed to establish undergraduate and graduate program offerings in Phoenixville, in fields ranging from elementary education and criminal justice to accounting and business administration.

Each college would have its own space within the complex, but many facilities - including a commissary, a fitness center, student union, and a day-care center - would be cooperatively managed, and the costs shared.

This would be a great addition to Phoenixville as it would provide numerous new jobs as well as bring it people from all over the area. Both can only help the businesses in town who rely on heavy foot traffic. It will also give those of us who want to further their education an extremely convenient, and high quality, way to do so.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
