Police Athletic League wants to move into community center

Members of the Police Athletic League board presented information to City Council Monday night regarding a proposal for the organization to be housed in the Coatesville Memorial Community Center.

“By obtaining a building, the Coatesville Police Athletic League will be able to serve the needs of the Coatesville area youth by providing additional programs and life skills support,” said Coatesville Detective Gerald Pawling during a presentation to council. “We will be able to run supervised after school programs in connection with other area agencies that already supply programs through the Coatesville school district. The addition of a building for our PAL program will enable us to provide a safe and structured environment for the area youth to meet and participate in activities.”

Do you think it's a good idea for the Police Athletic League to move into the communuity center?

It would be a great idea to move the liquor stores out of Coatesville and the the world in general. Bars and liquor stores are especially a tool to corrupt a poor neighborhood. Walgreens could have a better impression to a cleaner environment without a liquor store in the same vacinity. West Chester is a liquor town festing on college students, but they can easily fog the idea because they can afford to dress up their drunkeness. LET US ALL CLEAN UP OUR TOWNS!

Oh please what a lame excuse - lets blame alcohol or all the worlds ails instead of going to the source and that's the people. Where is accountability of people in the town? The person, their parents - how they were brought up. Seems that you simply have an issue with alcohol and not cleaning up Coatesville. Funny how you choose to use the PAL blog to bring this up. Why not write to the DLN? BTW the Walgreens is taking the whole lot including the liquor store from what I am told. Festing? Geez - this is 2010 not 1910 - Pennsylvania has one of the most archaic liquor ordinances around. The issue is not the drunkenness the issue is the choices made by the people to drink and behave in a manner that is unacceptable.
