Councilman Senley posted on his blog on Monday that the Gay Street Bridge is tentatively scheduled to reopen at 11am on Friday, October 16th, some six months ahead of schedule.
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
Does anyone know the cost of the bridge? Just curious to know what the pricetag is for such a great piece of work. I was afraid it might just be a blah bridge, but it's pretty nice!
