Coatesville Train Station Open House Set for Wednesday
WEST CHESTER (June 1) – State Senator Andy Dinniman and PennDOT announced a public meeting and open house on plans for the new Coatesville Train Station is scheduled for Wednesday, June 3, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Olivet Methodist Church (310 East Chestnut Street) in Coatesville.
This Public Open Plans Display will focus on the Coatesville Train Station, the 3rd Avenue Streetscape project and the planned career education and entrepreneurial center located along Fleetwood Street between North 3rd Avenue and North 4th Avenue.
“The Coatesville Train Station project is a top priority for PennDOT and this meeting represents a significant step forward for the future of the City of Coatesville,” said Dinniman. “This open house will allow citizens to view the design plans for the new train station and the 3rd Avenue streetscape project. More importantly, this meeting is a crucial opportunity for the public to weigh in and make recommendations for this project.”
Those who attend this meeting will have the opportunity to meet the project design team, view displays showing proposed improvements, and discuss details of the project. Members of the PennDOT design team will be on hand to answer questions, take comments and address concerns.
“For years, citizens and city residents have called for revitalization in Coatesville. The new train station is the key to that rebirth,” Dinniman said. “Community involvement continues to play a key role in Coatesville’s future. If you have something to say or an idea about how to improve the train station, I encourage you to come out to the upcoming meeting and play a hands-on role in the redevelopment of your city.”
The open house meeting encourages public input and is a component of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). PennDOT design teams will present information on the proposed improvement plan, discuss the projects’ objectives, and address questions or concerns from the public.
