Core Community Clean-up Planning Meeting Set for Tuesday

Blogger's Note: The following was provided Friday afternoon by Cathy Skitko from The Hill School:

Residents and business owners of the Borough of Pottstown have the opportunity to share suggestions and requests for targeted neighborhood property repairs and general "clean-up" needs during a community conversation to be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 25 in the Ricketts Center, 640 Beech St., Pottstown.

During this gathering, representatives from the Borough, the Pottstown School District, and The Hill School will begin planning a collaborative volunteer project that will involve teams of personnel and students from these three entities on Friday, Oct. 25.

The Project is focusing on the core redevelopment area bounded by High Street, north to Beech Street, then from Hanover Street east to Edgewood Street.

Dubbed the Pottstown CARES Project -- with CARES representing Community, Awareness, Responsibility, Empowerment, and Sustainability -- this endeavor will utilize the efforts of The Hill School's students, faculty, and staff; a dedicated group of Pottstown School District students and teachers; and a crew of Borough maintenance professionals.

Pottstown residents are encouraged to attend the meeting Tuesday evening to help organizers plan how to make a tangible impact on the borough on Oct. 25, both in terms of improved aesthetics and, ideally, heightened and sustainable Pottstown community spirit and commitment.

Light refreshments will be served.

For additional information, please contact Assistant Borough Manager Erika Weekley at 610-970-6515 or


  1. How lovely and encouraging the meeting was!! New faces in the group - always a welcome sight. It's comforting to know that some us were tucked up, safe and sound, at the Ricketts Center while bullets flew just a few blocks away, endangering the lives of innocent people.

    Oh well, never mind, there's trash to pick up and plenty else to do to distract us from the realities of ward one, Pottstown.

  2. Hello – I must say, I'm impressed with your site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and information was very easy to access. I found what I wanted in no time at all. Pretty awesome. Would appreciate it if you add forums or something, it would be a perfect way for your clients to interact. Great job
