Took my out of town family there yesterday. There were lots of great vendors & the town has some nice buildings. However there are also alot of scary looking people that I would not trust near my family. Friends from the area tell me they are from a multitude of rehabs & section 8's in town. It is a shame that there is not a limit to the amount of these places that can open in one town. If it wasn't for all the deadbeats taking but giving nothing back to society this town could have alot of potential.

Didn't see any of those peckerheads around yesterday. So much better than anything Richland does. Unless you're a little girl who likes to play softball on stolen land. Right ? Rickie.

There are a disproportionate number of group homes in Quakertown Boro because years ago Quakertown politicians decided they didnít want to join in on the Quakertown Area Zoning Ordinance.

That makes no sense. Could you explain your statement in a more specific manner?

Think how the "scary" poeple thought when they observed you, looking down your nose at them. Quite a broad brush you used in characterizing those less fortunate than you. Sorry you had to put up with humans that are inferior to your standards.

Imagine if you came into town for Arts Alive and all the parking spots were taken by Bentleys, with signs on the meters that say "reserved for persons richer and better looking than you" on them. You would be offended and demand equal parking spaces, equal rights, etc...yet you blindly labelled people based on their looks alone.

To me, you are the scary one.

People get that way from using drugs & alcohol.From using their free check to get inked & pierced.It's a choice how you want your life to be. So stop making excuses for poor decisions. Having an opinion does not discrimminate against anyone. You & everyone else make an initial impression on others when they first see them so dont get all high & mighty about that. It has nothing to do with being rich or good looking it has to do with pride & work ethic.It's people like you who are dragging this country down.

I love that our town is having these type of events. But - I must say that the spring event is not as good as the one in the fall. The only plus side this year was the wine/cheese tasting section. There was too much jewelry and not one single vendor who did pottery. That actually shocked me. Also, I really do think whoever is in charge of this event should push to fill the other side of Broad Street (Dimmigs). I feel as though it would 'flow' better. And another thing that caught my attention is the lack of children activities (ie, bounce house, tractor pull). The last impressive Arts Alive! was the year before last. That's just my two cents :)

You have some great ideas. You should think about running for council. there's a few people on council now who should be replaced. your the kind of people this town needs. Just my 3 cents.

Thanks but no thanks Potter! I am the type that will offer advice/ideas and spend good money at these events. I don't have the time or energy.

I'm sorry to hear that. Q-town really needs some forward thinkers like yourself. I just don't see the town moving ahead. I hope someday you will be able to find the time and run for office. It seems like our town is swirling down the toilet bowl.

The Quakertown Area Zoning Ordinance was enacted 40 years ago by Milford, Richland, Haycock, and Trumbauersville. It had a lot more restrictions on just about everything, including group homes. At the time, Quakertown and Richlandtown decided their ordinances were fine, and didn't join in. As it turns out, their ordinances were not fine.

The people currently in St. Luke's psychiatric ward are not allowed out, so I doubt if that will change when (and if) the whole place is used for that purpose.

You're right. I was referring to the posters ability to see a need for change and offer some fresh and new ideas. Council hasn't had a new idea in decades. And if a new concept is thought about. It sits forever with little or no progress. How long has the boro owned the Krupp site? Now it will sit another two years while they find sponsors willing to pay a giant fee to attach their name to a pavilion. Who wants their name on the restroom?
