MODENA, PA — Jennifer Daywalt, Council President of Modena Borough, recently announced the borough renovated their South Brandywine Avenue bridge utilizing funds from the county. Additionally, the Borough also recently received grant money to contribute to the acquisition of the historic home known as the Mode House.

The acquisition of Mode House will provide the Borough with 2.5 acres and the house which would be converted into a new borough hall and, if possible, community center space. The 2.5 acres will be used for open space and a park area.

In 2022, the Borough will work on revamping its comprehensive plan. Moreover, Modena will turn 100 years old in 2021 and has a plan for a Polar Bear Plunge to benefit the Parks and Recreations Department to fund new playground equipment. This event is projected to be at the end of February or early March.

Modena Borough is reporting some space for growth. A corner retail space that was previously a bar sold last year to Four Brothers which is working to create a deli and office space. A property owner is seeking to build a laundromat off Union Street. The President of Western Chester County Council of Governments stated, “[A] big project is to do a regional animal control initiative, anyone interested can reach out to inquire.”
