Construction Of New Middle School To Begin On The Last Day Of School

From the Phoenix:
Construction of the new Phoenixville Area Middle School is scheduled to begin on the last day of the current school year.

During a recent school board meeting, Damion Spahr, regional vice president of Reynold Construction Management, gave the school board an update on the status of the $60 million middle school project.

Spahr said that his company will begin receiving bids to do the work on March 11, 2010.

"We've had a lot of contractors come by and pick up information to bid on the job," Spahr informed the board. "We would like to have a Notice To Proceed on or before May 3, 2010."

With construction scheduled to begin on the last day of the current school year, Spahr said that they anticipate having the new school completely constructed by the summer of 2012.

"We would like to have it done by then for fall 2012 occupancy," he said.

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
