Mayor Committed to downtown businesses

Although our economy is beginning to show some signs of recovery, it is still marginal in many sectors.  As I begin my term as your new mayor, I would like to reach out to West Chester citizens to join me in supporting our local businesses and Borough programs. 
 
One program that I'm very excited about is The 3/50 Project, created by Cinda Baxter, a former retailer who wanted to provide her own local version of an economic stimulus plan. The project's goal is to improve the local economy three stores at a time. It promotes shopping in locally owned businesses and making a positive impact on our local economy.
 
This is how it works:  think about which three independently owned stores you'd miss most if they were gone.  Stop in, say hello, and pick up a little something that will make someone smile. That's how they stay around. And for every $100 spent in our locally owned stores, $68 returns to our community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures.
 
Let's make the 3/50 Project part of West Chester's economic stimulus plan. Your support of our locally owned businesses will make a difference.
 
Mayor Carolyn Comitta
Borough of West Chester
