It is very exciting that the hole in the 200 block of High Street is disappearing. Almost two years ago a huge fire damaged Lastic Furniture and several other adjacent businesses. This created an unsightly gap in the middle of downtown Pottstown.
At first it appeared as though the rebuilding had begun. Then it stalled for what seemed like an eternity. I was afraid it was another economic casualty but lo and behold the phoenix rises! A nice new building is filling this space in our downtown.
I cannot stress enough the importance of not allowing the downtown to resemble Beiruit! Kudos to the owners for honoring their commitment to rebuild in downtown Pottstown!
Further down High Street another burned out building is runder construction as well. Great signs of progress for Pottstown. People are still willing to invest here. As long as that is the case, don’t count us out!
