Phoenixville Criterium Being Held This Saturday

On Saturday, June 30th, the Chesco Grand Prix comes to town with their Phoenixville Criterium.

From chescograndprix.com:
2012 marks the launch of this high quality series of criteriums (spectator-friendly competitive cycling events) and cycling road races in towns, villages and the rural countryside of Chester County, Pennsylvania. Each event will feature exciting races for amateurs, elite women and professionals, mostly held on downtown circuits of one mile or less. Designed to bring people into town on a summer evening, the entertaining 4 to 5 hour criteriums will include music, professional announcing, celebrity appearances, youth races and more. Chester County horse country will be the backdrop for the Chesco Time Trial, Road Race and July 4th Holiday Barbeque. The Chesco Grand Prix will be an annual week-long festival that celebrates cycling, showcases Chester County and promotes the National Velodrome being planned for Coatesville.

The Phoenixville event, the third of the series, begins at 2pm with the professionals beginning their race at 6:10. The races begin on the 200 block of Bridge Street, making their way down to Main Street before heading north to Vanderslice, west back Gay Street, north to High Street, back south on Main to Church, west again to Gay Street and back to Bridge to complete the 1.3 mile circuit. Roads will be closed throughout the area as a result beginning at around noon.

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
