When it rains it pours. Here are three meetings dealing with zoning and development issues coming up today and tomorrow:
• Cedar Park Neighbors will host a community zoning hearing for a proposed ice cream shop to go in the former Philadelphia Federal Credit Union building at 4610 Cedar Ave. Yes, this is the same building that Domino’s Pizza was interested in. Philly Flavors will outline their business and building renovations plans. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Renewal Presbyterian Church at 4633 Cedar Ave.
• The ongoing conversation about the commercial development of 52nd Street will continue tonight as well. The City of Philadelphia has had its eye on redevelopment projects on the street for a while, sparking protests among some street vendors. To catch up on the issues involved, go here and here. Tonight’s meeting is at 6 p.m. at the White Rock Baptist Church at 5240 Chestnut St.
• The focus will continue to be on 52nd Street on Thursday as Cedar Park Neighbors hosts a meeting to discuss the proposal to convert the empty Apply Storage building at 780-782 S. 52nd St. (near Willows Avenue). The building’s owner, Apple Iron Stone, plans to convert the building into loft apartments with first-floor retail and parking in the rear. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at The Wayland Memorial Baptist Church at 5126 Baltimore Ave.
