Last night, State Rep Greg Vitali hosted a free public Business District Revitalization Workshop at the 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 Pennsylvania
        NewPA - State of Innovation -
 - Julie Fitzpatrick   Special Projects Coordinator - Pennsylvania Downtown Center
        Pennsylvania Downtown Center -
 - Laura Goodrich   Director of Marketing - Delaware County Commerce Center
        Delaware County Commerce Center -
 - John Fleming   Lead Business Development Specialist - SBA
        SBA - Philadelphia -
 - Glenn McAllister   Director - Widener Small Business Development Center
        Widener University Small Business Development Center - 

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 that the State of Pennsylvania is providing 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.
