Introducing Codename: Bacchus

For the second time in 2016, myself and a few select readers had the pleasure of pouring over 40 submitted packets for the latest PHIT Sketch House team – and for the second time in 2016, putting together this team proved to be a challenging process given the sheer amount of talent present in Philadelphia.

9/26 Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority is offering Purchase and Development of 800-30 Vine Street

150 N. 6th Street

    Bill seeks more protection for pedestrians during sidewalk closures
    At the last City Council session of the year, Councilwoman Helen Gym introduced a bill, cosponsored by Councilman Mark Squilla, to bolster pedestrian safety requirements at construction sites that impede sidewalks. The legislation would amend a law crafted by then-Councilman Jim Kenney that requires those seeking permits for sidewalk closures to prove that a protected walkway would be infeasible.
