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.

Whiteland Towne Center The City of Coatesville’s Competition

1300 new apartments under construction, 210,000 daytime employees, 2.9 million square feet of retail, $124,618 average household income.  
Whiteland Towne Center is situated at the commercial bullseye of this robust submarket--the crossroads of Rt. 100 and Rt. 30 in Exton, PA

Main Street at Exton - Commerce Dr- Indian Run Rd

The Exton Rt. 30 / Rt. 100 area has most of the same things Coatesville has, including a train station. What it’s lacking is residents near shopping & work. West Whiteland Township is working on the residential part. 

I called the Exton developments competition but I think there is ample demand for apartments & condominiums in Chester County.

"Apartments continued to be the most popular proposed housing type in Chester County in 2018 – a trend that started a few years ago – but there also was an increase in proposals for single-family detached homes.

While residential lots/units increased significantly overall, from 2,800 in 2017 to approximately 3,700 in 2018, apartments remained the largest proposed housing type (1,482 in 2018 versus 1,208 in 2017), according to the Chester County Planning Commission. Apartment proposals were followed by single-family detached homes (1,061 in 2018 versus 610 in 2017) and townhouses (959 in 2018 versus 800 in 2017)."
