June Argall Report: The Ongoing Revitalization of Pottsville

POTTSVILLE – The June edition of the local TV program hosted by Senator David G. Argall (R-Berks/Schuylkill) focuses on the several revitalization projects taking place throughout the City of Pottsville. 

“Whether I’m eating lunch at Tamaqua’s Train Station Restaurant, attending the Kielbasi Festival in Shenandoah, the Hamburger Festival in Hamburg, or enjoying some wings at Jimmy G’s in Sinking Spring, you can see the community revitalization efforts that are taking place from one end of the 29th District to the other – and Pottsville is a real leader in this ongoing effort,” Senator Argall said.  “Pottsville is earning statewide recognition for its success in breathing new life into its old downtown.” 

In 2018, the Pottsville Continued Progress Project launched in an effort to revitalize the city. Its goals include improving the quality of living and economic development within the city, increased property values, increased options for goods and services for residents, create jobs, improve the business climate within the city, and make Pottsville “a cool place to live”. This year, it has been recognized as one of the very best cities in Pennsylvania for food and drink.

“This home-grown revitalization of Pottsville is just beginning,” Senator Argall continued. “I want to thank everyone who has been doing their part to make Pottsville a better place to live, work, and relax. Our local volunteers and our state partners, including Representative Joe Kerwin and Representative Tim Twardzik, have been great leaders in this effort. Our county partners, our city officials, and the local employers and employees who are pouring their hearts into this community should be congratulated on all the progress they have made so far and I know they have much more to offer.”

This month’s edition of the Argall Report showcases several new Pottsville businesses including Black Rock Brewing, the Crimson House, Drasdis and Son Clothing, Pilger Ruh Brewing, and Pressed Coffee and Books.
