$1 million donation toward Willows mansion renovation announced

$1 million donation toward Willows mansion renovation announced
Plans to renovate the Willows mansion in Radnor got a boost with a $1 million donation from an anonymous donor. Christina Perrone, one of the founders of the new nonprofit Willows Park Preserve, which is dedicated to restoring and operating the 107-year old mansion, announced the gift at a recent Radnor Township Board of Commissioners meeting. The BOC also heard a presentation by consultants Barton Partners, Urban Partners and RETTEW regarding renovation of the mansion and business plan recommendations. Mark Evans, with Barton Partners, said they had designed a three-phase plan for renovations of the mansion, with phase one consisting of health and safety needs, phase two providing it with more amenities, and phase three adding the Pond View Room, a glass enclosed room overlooking the pond that would allow the Willows mansion to compete with other venues in the area for the lucrative wedding business. With the $1 million matching gift from an anonymous donor, the township would need to spend $2.75 million to make the three-phase plan a reality. Some township officials expressed concern over the costs associated with the renovation. Commissioner Jim Higgins said there was “broad demand” for “historic venues for weddings,” and noted the township can apply for state grants. Township Manager Robert Zienkowski said the mansion, now a “diamond in the rough,” could be the “crown jewel of the community.”

Study: Pa. towns face financial distress, need resources 

September 15, 2017

Study: Pa. towns face financial distress, need resources 
A report released by the Pennsylvania Economy League says the financial health of Pennsylvania towns is worsening due to rising tax burdens, overmatched tax bases, ballooning pensions and fragmented governments. The report, “Communities in Crisis: The Truth and Consequences of Municipal Fiscal Distress in Pennsylvania, 1970 – 2014,” was funded by 11 nonprofit groups and can be found on the Berks County Community Foundation website here. It states that overall fiscal conditions have worsened over the past two decades and recommends that the state allow towns to tap more revenue sources, create incentives for local governments to collaborate, and expand their abilities to share tax bases and services. Tax burdens have increased in the state’s cities, boroughs and townships since 1990, outpacing gains in the tax base in boroughs and townships, and leaving all types of municipalities vulnerable to financial distress, according to the study. Among the most troubled towns cited in the report are: Coatesville, Chester County; Chester, Delaware County; and Pottstown, Montgomery County. The Economy League studied 2,388 of Pennsylvania’s 2,561 municipalities for which data were available to compare the years 1970, 1990 and 2014.
