Diversity and unity are the two main words that come to mind. Being apart of this city makes everyone family. The resources and assistance are easily accessible and beneficial to supporting the community to become the best they can be. The history in this city is also very rich and interesting. Coatesville is like its own little melting pot, blending all races and ethnicities together to become one.
Coatesville is an extremely diverse city with a beautiful community. It is a place that I will always consider my home. However, it also contains some slight defects. If I could change Coatesville I would add more job opportunities with better pay in order to help families financially and to make Coatesville a strong community economically. Coatesville has a very friendly ambience during the day, but at night it becomes a lot more dangerous. If I could change this I would add a law enforcement system with better judgement and increased safety protocols. Coatesville will forever be my home, but it still contains branches it can improve upon.
