Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog

Public Corruption in Chester County, PA

I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

Presentation by Pro Cycling Tour at Coatesville RDA tonight

Agenda for Monday, June 21, 2010
5. Presentation
    b. David Chauner – Pro Cycling Tour
The RDA meeting is at Coatesville City Hall. The meeting begins at 7 pm.

From Pro Cycling Tour News

"The 2,500 seat arena and velodrome, a steeply banked wooden track, will be capable of hosting high level national and international competition and will provide a much needed year round facility for training and development of young cyclists. Although the velodrome and comprehensive cycling program will anchor the facility, the building is designed for multi-use including added seating capacity for concerts, other sporting events and community activities...

The only other indoor velodrome in the United States opened in 2004 in Los Angeles and has become a site for national and international cycling events, championships and youth development programs.  There are 22 outdoor velodromes in the nation, the closest and most successful being the Valley Preferred Cycling Center in TrexlertownPA, a magnet for cyclists that has been in summer-only operation since 1976...
Velodrome Management Group, LLC has been researching sites in the Philadelphia area for several years and recently decided on Chester County due to its proximity to Philadelphia and central location in SE Pennsylvania, home to thousands of cyclists and cycling events. CCEDC is helping them find a ten to fifteen acre site that, ideally, is close to rail lines and major highways and in a community that has nearby hotels, restaurants and businesses to service visitors. An added plus will be close proximity to other recreation and entertainment facilities as well as a location that could be easily reached by bike path.
 Built at a cost of approximately $15 million, developers expect the velodrome to create nearly 100 new full and part time jobs and that $25 to $35 million will be pumped into the local economy by some 50,000 out of town visitors each year.  IMC Construction of Malvern, R2 Architects of Vorhees, NJ and V-Worldwide of Detroit have been selected to assist VMG with the project."
It looks like the City of Coatesville has all the ingredients for a world class indoor velodrome. It also looks like the companies involved have what it takes to make it happen. Does the RDA and City Council have what it takes to allow it to happen?
