Are you concerned about development in Suburban Philadelphia?  Worried about revitalization of a commercial area?  Looking at the impacts on the surrounding residential areas? Are you thinking of starting a business?  Considering a move into the state and need to know what resources are available?

Last night, State Rep Greg Vitali hosted a free public Business District Revitalization Workshop at theManoa Elementary School Havertown PA New Manoa Elementary School in Havertown for anyone interested in improving and revitalizing the local business districts.  In addition to brief introductions by various elected officials, the presentations included five representatives from various organizations which covered the spectrum of resources available for communities and individuals for both private and public improvements.

In order of the speakers, we heard:
Toni Crawford-Major Regional Director Commonwealth of PA

SBA – Phl- www.sba.gov/localresources/district/pa/phil/index.html
Glenn McAllister Director – Widener Small Bus Development Ctr

The above individuals highlighted the wide variety of sources of help and funding for many business, residential, and commercial enterprises.  The organizations demonstrated the importance and wealth of support provided by the State of Pennsylvania to its citizens to improve both the business and residential environment in the state.  The above can be used throughout Delaware County and Chester County.
