The parking proposal for Harmony Street came up 4 years ago. It had no merit then and it has no merit now. I believe that Mr. Hudson and Mr. Barry have some unknown reason for their proposal.
This is an excerpt from a Daily Local News article from July of 2008:
“The parking strategy has already had at least one opponent. Judy Skolnik, owner of the Coatesville Army & Navy Store on the 200 block of East Lincoln Highway, told council that changing the traffic pattern on Harmony Street, which runs behind her shop, would make her business less accessible to customers.
‘Would the proposed change hurt me personally?
You bet it would,’ Skolnick said. "Don't hurt your businesses," she said. ‘We are an asset you don't want to lose. Or do you?"
