|Miscellaneous comments||Library. Taxi service. I’m tired of always having to drive 20+ minutes to get anything I need. We need more places that our Community can meet up. ABC was a big loss. Bring Wawa back to Main St. Meeting spaces like the Hub in Philadelphia. Nice hotel- maybe a Hilton. Basically, everything is in other towns (the big shopping centers in Town Center and in Limerick), but they are all national “cookie cutter” places. Phoenixville does well because it is almost exclusively local-only establishments. Wifi, wifi, wifi.|
