As the Philadelphia City Planning Commission continues working on a new District Plan for West Philly neighborhoods as part of the Philadelphia 2035 plan, area community associations are asking residents to provide input on how they envision their neighborhood in the future. This Saturday (Jan. 5), Garden Court Community Association is holding a meeting for Garden Court residents (45th St. to 52nd St., Locust St. to Cedar Ave) where the University City Southwest 2035 plan will be reviewed. The meeting will be held from 12-2 p.m. at 4725 Chestnut (Community College of Philadelphia) and lunch will be served.
Here’s the GCCA announcement:
GCCA will be asking for residents’ input on the following two topics:
1. Five Redevelopment Areas for University City Southwest
The Philadelphia Planning Commission has identified five areas to target for redevelopment in University City Southwest:
40th Street Station Area
46th and Market Streets
Baltimore Avenue (west of 50th)
Lower Schuylkill Development Site
2. Garden Court Neighborhood
As surrounding areas develop, what do residents hope will stay the same about Garden Court? Let GCCA know what features give the neighborhood its character and what you would like to preserve and what you would like to improve.
Please RSVP to GCCA Zoning Chair Mariya Khandros at: email@example.com.
FYI, the 2nd public meeting on the University Southwest District Plan will take place Wednesday, Jan. 23 at Kingsessing Recreation Center. More information is coming soon.
