Bridge and Main Streets to be closed next week

Councilman Gautreau posted this on the facebook earlier today:

Notice from Phoenixville borough manager:

At our Streetscape construction meeting this morning, PennDOT, the contractor, and staff agreed that the best course of action for the intersection at Main Street and Bridge Street is to close it entirely on October 8 and 9. The grade changes needed to balance that intersection based on the new construction does not provide a safe vehicle environment. In addition, they have to install a new stormwater inlet, a new manhole and make the connections about ten feet down in the middle of Bridge. These dates may be pushed to October 9 and 10 due to possible inclement weather. The intent is for the intersection to remain closed the entire time. The goal always remains to open as soon as possible.

Essentially Bridge Street will be closed to non-local traffic between Starr Street and Gay Street. Main Street will be closed between Church Street and Mill Street.

We are notifying residents and businesses in the affected area and will be posting the electronic signs at Bridge and Starr and at Nutt and Bridge. We also expect signs to be posted at the intersection in advance of the closure.

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

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back , Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret. The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture: --- Opening in September 2008, The Fenix will offer a unique selection of over 15 specialty martinis as well as classic cocktails, fine wines and spirits. An eye-catching menu of delicious food will also be available along with great music and live DJ’s. The Fenix will create an exciting and varied cocktail party atmosphere every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4pm. Our guests will enjoy the comfortable lounge for food or a casual after work drink. Later on, they can listen or dance to the best music and DJ’s around or just gather at
