Editor’s note: We heartily agree! West Reading is a happening town! Maybe the leadership from Pottstown should rent a bus and take a field trip to see what revitalization actually looks like! It sure as heck isn’t found on High Street!
A state official praised West Reading on Wednesday for being ahead of the curve in its efforts to revitalize the community.
“For a borough of 4,000 people, they’re doing an awful lot of good things,” said Secretary C. Alan Walker of the state Department of Community and Economic Development.
During a tour of West Reading led by Elm Street Program Manager Dean Rohrbach, Walker said borough officials have a good vision.
“They know what they want to do and they’re carrying it out,” he said, referring to streetscape and building-facade improvements throughout West Reading.
