Dear Pottstown Community Citizens,

The current contract to lease The Richard J. Ricketts Center expires December 31, 2019. The STRIVE Initiative has submitted a community-led, alternative proposal to the Pottstown Borough Council which offers a renewed solution to the building’s current operations.

Our work in the middle school has enabled a data-driven approach to assessing what teens would like to see in their community. Moreover, small group discussions conducted in the community with all ages, as well as with the high school, have solicited enough of a response to determine a gap in services for teens and family engagement. We believe that our proposal best addresses the needs of the community based on current, comprehensive data indicating the wants and needs of Pottstown citizens.

The STRIVE Initiative will present their proposal to the Borough Council on Monday, May 13th at 7:00 p.m. at Borough Hall. (Facebook Event Link)

  • The STRIVE Initiative encourages all Pottstown citizens to show up at Borough Hall to demonstrate their thoughts, feelings and a willingness to strengthen our community and participate in rebuilding and redefining what Pottstown will be in the future!
