Coatesville was and can once again be the jewel of Chester County! It has highly educated families of every ethnic, racial, and nationality groups. Let's talk about ways we can turn our downtown area into a Manayunk, filled with nice restaurants, and niche shops. Let's come up with ways to bring a College and or a University downtown. Let's make Coatesville the place in which people from all over want to visit.

This discussion is NOT for racist or negative people! This discussion is for those who have solutions to making Coatesville a great place! Let's talk about how we can do this!

Well I am from Coatesville. And even though I understand your sarcasm, I think the person you replied to was asking for "positive feedback"
I graduated from Coatesville and now have three kids in Octorara. Correction - Two kids in Octorara. My high school child went from a happy, popular student to bullied so badly she was spending her lunch period in the bathroom. Not ONE school official did ANYTHING to help her. Even after our pleads for help. Aside from that, when my 12 yr old started 6th grade she was reading at a 3rd grade level. I had to push the school to test her 2 yrs prior after they stated they saw no learning problems. This also happened with my oldest. After pushing the school into testing it was finally discovered each had a slight learning disibility. My oldest has told me many times about the drugs being passed around and the sexual activities within the school, during school hours. My oldest & I have actually had to move to a rental in Coatesville School District due to the bullying she endured in Octorara. Thankfully she is now back to her happy, positive self enjoying time with new friends - from COATESVILLE. BTW - shes an honor roll student & drug/alcohol free. We couldn't be happier with the great teachers and support staff at Coatesville School.
Back to the subject, there is a lot of money and intelligent people in Coatesville. It is sad to see however the city has really gotten bad over the last ten years. I support anyone who is looking to do something about it! But I definately think it has to start at the city township/borough first. A good place to start would to find out if there is anyone hired by the city to inspect rental properties and fine owners for shambolic properties, junk throughout yards, unregistered cars, etc. Ask the local judge to start having anyone she sentences to community service to have them start "cleaning up" trash along streets, picking up yards on foreclosures, etc. Good Luck!
