Phoenixville Featured on CNN.com

CNN.com today has a feature on Phoenixville. The article, which can be viewed here, primarily talks about BlobFest and a growing culture of people who travel to towns where their favorite movies are filmed. But it also talks a bit about the renaissance we are experiencing and how the Colonial Theatre has played a big roll role in it. Well worth a read.

Thanks to readers David, Ben and Victor for the tip!

Update 8/21/08: Thanks to my anoymous editor for the catch.

Pville just keeps 'role'-ing and we're just getting started. I love the direction the town is going and all of the exposure only makes me feel more passionately about our great little town. Keep it up!

My brother and his wife sent me this article in the mail. It was on the cover of the entertainment section in their newspaper....in MAINE!

The print article was HUGE, too. I felt very proud to be a Phoenixvillain : )

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
