New Proposal Would Revitalize Job Training Center At New Coatesville Train Station

Urban development is on the rise as officials say Coatesville is finally bouncing back.

The much-awaited new train station project in Coatesville now will not only bring construction jobs to town but also a permanent job training center if State Sen. Andrew Dinniman has his way.

The proposal for a multi-purpose train station waiting area and meeting venue for job skills and career training education was recently announced by state Sen. Andrew Dinniman after discussion with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, according to a Daily Local News report.

PennDOT has $20 million slated for the station and job training project so long as revitalization of the surrounding area comes with the investment.

“There is still plenty of track to lay before we get rolling, but this is a tremendous opportunity for Coatesville,” Dinniman spokesman Adam Cirucci said in the article.

“The new train station will be the front door to Coatesville, and right alongside it, we are committed to putting a job and education training center – a pathway for the community to access all the opportunities the city’s revitalization has to offer.”
