Mission & Vision
The West Reading Main Street Foundation is a community development organization created by elected and non-elected leaders of the community to develop and manage the mechanisms for a prosperous and competitive business environment. The Foundation will act broadly within the parameters set by the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s xvideos National redtube Main Street pornhub Program to:
1) promote xnxx a sense youporn of community and unified purpose,
2) assure the historic continuity of the community’s architectural heritage,
3) improve the image and perception of the community to residents and visitors and
4) strengthen economic rejuvenation of property and commerce.
West Reading’s central business district will be occupied by an effective combination of high quality, niche retail and service xxx businesses offering distinctive products and accommodating the desires of discriminating consumers. The District’s historic and commercial buildings will be rehabilitated for mixed use including upper floor housing. A fully revitalized streetscape will noticeably increase the desirability to own and operate properties and businesses and will attract new investors and entrepreneurs to the community.
The $6 million Streetscape Enhancement Project completed in 2003 has dramatically improved the public environment in the shopping district.

West Reading Welcome Wall Mural
Mike Miller and Nancey Seghetti, resident artists and Design Team members will be working on the implementation of the mural this summer. The project budget is $10,000. Sam Loth has secured the pledges of Ed Kuhn (Kuhn’s Funeral Home) and Jim Edwards (Edwards Business Systems) and will be actively seeking further pledges through this summer and fall. Contributors to the project will be recognized at the unveiling ceremony upon completion of the mural with names inscribed on a brass plaque which will be mounted at the mural site. The location of the mural is the east face of the West Reading Diner. The mural will greet motorists and pedestrians at Fourth and Penn Avenues as they travel into the Borough from the 422 By-pass and the City of Reading.
