It was a little chilly but no one noticed. Warmth came from working together to make Coatesville a better place. From left to right in the lineup photo; Sheila Fleming and Wesley Horner from the Brandywine Conservancy, former City Councilman Kareem Johnson, Matt Baker, Officer Ollis and Marie Hess Weed of the Seed Committee. In the other photos you can see Weed and Seed Director Allen Smith, the really amazing John Pawlowski and Public Works Director Don Wilkinson. Sorry, I just couldn’t get everyone’s name.
This is Wesley Horner speaking about the plans for Today’s Earth Day Tree Planting in Coatesville at the April 11 Coatesville City Council meeting:
"Wesley Horner recently joined the Conservancy staff as Senior Advisor for Water Resources. A familiar face, Wes was Associate Director of the Conservancy’s Municipal Assistance Program (MAP) from 1996 to 2000. While here, he co-authored two handbooks, the Conservation Design for Stormwater Management and Transferable Development Rights: A Flexible Option for Redirecting Growth in Pennsylvania. Most recently, he worked for Cahill Associates, an engineering firm formerly of West Chester, and CH2M HILL in Philadelphia. During his tenure with Cahill Associates, Wes managed the preparation of Pennsylvania’s Stormwater Best Management Practices Manual. Contributions to numerous other manuals for managing low impact development-stormwater fill his resume.
At the Conservancy, Wes will strengthen our sustainable watershed management program. Many will benefit from the treasure of experiences that make him a leader in his field.
A graduate of Haverford College with a Bachelor of Arts degree, Wes also received a Master of City and Regional Planning degree from Harvard University. An avid gardener, he lives in the Coatesville area and has two grown children."
