The Chestnut Street Park and adjoining police substation will soon be beautified by a mural project. Genesis Housing is funding the mural to be painted on the side of the substation facing the park. Anna Johnson, co-founder of Citizens for Pottstown Revitalization, appeared before Council urging them to approve this project (which they did unanimously).
The Gallery on High found an artist for the project who will design the mural and work with high school students to complete it.
Two Roy’s Rants thumbs up to Genesis Housing, Citizens for Pottstown Revitalization and the Gallery on High for partnering on this project to help transform a neighborhood!
