Aston, PA – Today, Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Deputy Secretary of Community Affairs Rick Vilello joined local leaders on a tour of state-supported community revitalization projects in Aston, Delaware County.

“Today’s visit has been a great opportunity to see a place where a lot of progress is being made,” said Deputy Secretary Vilello. “The Wolf Administration is proud to make communities like Aston safer and stronger.”
