Community Fundraiser To Save The Coudersport Area Pool Was A HUGE Success!


The Community Pool Fundraiser at the American Legion on Saturday night was a huge success! We raised $22,788.00, thanks to the generosity of the large crowd who attended. We cannot thank enough our small business community and so many individuals for their continued support of this event. There were so many people involved we are afraid we'll miss someone if we tried to list every one of them.
It was inspiring to see our community come together like this and we have no doubt that we can save our Pool.
Thanks again to all for attending, volunteering, donating and supporting these efforts.

Community Pool Fundraiser committee.

Current Pool Fund Donations/Pledges $166,717.32.
Big news coming Monday, May 22nd.

Are they still planning on destroying the Arboretum to raise money for this?

Actually they are. If you care then you better show up at Boro council meeting Wednesday night and let them know. How could they betray all of us who supported the arboretum with donations? We never thought our own Boro would screw us over for the all mighty dollar!

Great news on the pool. People in town sure have come through. I think there was some doubters out there but Coudersport really showed what it is made of. Not so great news on the Borough Council wanting to sell out to Sheets and Majot. Can anything be done?

Well with the donations and the sale a very nice multi use area could happen. Things could be moved to honor original donors to the arboretum.

With the arboretum sandwiched between two high traffic areas it is far less peaceful. If there was a real concern for it the time would have been before the dollar general was approved.

If you want to fight Sheetz/Majot:

*vote with your conscience for people into elected positions who feel the same
*write your local politicians in support of keeping the arboretum
*go to town meetings and express your views
*don't shop at Sheetz

What are you saying 7:06, before the Dollar General was "approved?" The person who owns the property has certain rights and unless this violated some zoning law it didn't have to "approved." He was fully within his rights. The Arboretum is one beautiful island in a sea of corporate invasion of Coudersport and a great community service of the Chamber of Commerce and caring people like Dick Buchanan and others to create a beautiful park that preserves our railroad heritage. Do the people of the town want to sell that out? It is one of the few remaining special things we have. Why sell it out and put the screws to the people who donated money to establish it? Are we really that cheap? Pull out the petitions and see how the people feel about it. Their opinions are right in front of your eyes.

The Coudersport Borough Office building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Its value would be greatly diminished if it is surrounded by unsightly, incompatible development.
The "green space" the Arboretum provides is located exactly where it needs to be in order to preserve our historical and environmental legacy.
If you agree that this land should not be for sale contact your borough council members or attend the 6:30 p.m. meeting Wednesday.

I have always planned to move back home. But if this is a sign of Coudersport's priorities then there are many other places that are not as quick to destroy their quality of life and cave in to whatever corporation dangles those dollars. My heart goes out to the good people who at least tried to create something special for the town like Richard Buchanan, David Hauber and the other conscientious leaders of the boro and the Chamber of Commerce. It looks like you folks have elected a boro council that is going to throw these fine dedicated public servants plus all of the gullible people who made donations to memorialize their loved ones under the bus. New England is looking nicer and nicer for our family now.
