More Details On Opening Of Gay Street Bridge

Its been confirmed that the Gay St. Bridge will reopen on Friday, October 16th. From an email I received:
We’ve confirmed with PennDOT that the opening of the Gay Street Bridge will be at 11:00 on Friday, October 16. PennDOT is in the process of sending invitations to all of the elected officials at all levels. It is my understanding that Les Toaso who is the District Executive for District 6 will be the MC for the ceremonies.

We are working with PennDOT to pull all of the logistics together. At this time we are planning to have the ribbon cutting at the center of the bridge. We are looking to have dignitaries and guests to gather at both ends of the bridge. At the designated time the procession will come from both ends and meet in the middle for the ceremonies and ribbon cutting.

We are working on everything from entertainment to classic cars. The biggest thing is getting the word out so that we have as large an audience as possible. As we get more information we will continue to put that onto our website and the government access channel. PennDOT will handle the formal press release and other media aspects

The title says October 16th but the text says October 11th. Perhaps the 11th is really the grand opening of Wegmans et al. in Collegeville.

the 11th is a Sun. So is the bridge opening on Fri the 9th. or Sun the 11th?

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
