Jennifer Mayo Appointed to Borough Council

Planning Commission member Jennifer Mayo has been appointed to Borough Council, taking the seat of Michael Handwerk who resigned his position in January. From The Phoenix:
Phoenixville Borough Council appointed Jennifer Mayo as its newest member Tuesday night with a vote of 4-3, filling the seat recently vacated with the resignation of Councilman Michael Handwerk.

Members Marc Reber, David Gautreau and Kendrick Buckwalter voted against the appointment of Mayo.

Council President Richard Kirkner said members had three candidates vie for the middle ward seat, with Mayo coming out on top.

Mayo has been an “active member” in borough government, serving for four years as a member on the borough’s planning commission, a year as a planning commission representative on the Historical Architectural Review Board and a member of the economic development committee, Kirkner said.

“She has a good understanding of what government can and can’t do,” Kirkner said.

Congratulations and good luck to Jennifer with her new position.

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
