The new SEPTA and Amtrak train station will be here sometime in 2015. The Hotel will open in 2012. And I haven't given up on the Velodrome.
The only fly in the ointment is Coatesville City Manager Gary Rawlings plan to lay off Coatesville Police. That would make the drug business good again in Coatesville, with people digging bullets out of their kitchen walls and the SUR 13 gangs coming up from southern Chester County recruiting Coatesville's youth again.
Hopefully the Coatesville City Council will have the good sense to ignore Rawlings and take money out of the water authority sale fund to keep police working. And maybe the city council will admit that hiring Rawlings was a big mistake, buy out his contract and send him off to play golf. Who knows, maybe that’s what he had in mind when he came here.
