Huuuuuuump Daaaaaaay! You’re not going to believe this, but Radnor voted down Villanova’s plan to put a dome over the Higgins Soccer Complex during the winter months.

And it also would have been visible to residents, who voiced concerns about their property value.

So, just another day in Radnor.

And now, the “news.”
