    A gnawed bag of raw poultry, meat particles on the ceiling close Philly eateries
    A gnawed bag of raw poultry with mouse feces on the package in a walk-in cooler is just gross. Knowing there could be meat particles on the ceiling will have me looking up from now on. And, the person in charge at another restaurant placed his hand inside a rice container after handling a container with mice droppings....ick.

Stoneleigh: A Natural Garden, @stoneleighnaturalgarden one of our neighboring gardens in @americasgardencapital, needs our help. The Lower Merion School District informed @natlands, the garden’s owners, last month that it is considering a proposal to seize the garden to build a new school or playing fields. We are surprised and dismayed this could happen after a multi-year, multi-million-dollar renovation to bring more open space to our region. The donation of the John and Chara Haas property, an extraordinary act of generosity, had a singular purpose: to open Stoneleigh up to the general public, so that everyone could enjoy this national and natural treasure free of charge. Gardens like @morrisarboretum and Stoneleigh play an important role in our communities, and offer more than just beauty and respite. In addition to supporting 1,500 jobs, a new study shows that our region’s public gardens collectively generate substantial economic benefits—an estimated $256 million a year. As a fellow public garden, we stand with Stoneleigh and support the efforts being made to keep the garden open. Consider signing the petition to #SaveStoneleigh here: http://bit.ly/2KIPk4C #americasgardencapital

Can't make it to the meeting? From July 17- September 14, you can comment on the draft plan online: www.phila2035.org/upper-northwest. What's a Plan? A city plan uses community input, research, and surveying, to guide how to improve housing, neighborhoods, jobs, shopping options, transportation, and public space. Plans also identify how to turn the ideas in the plan into action. Once completed, City Planning works with other city departments, partners, and community groups to make the plan happen. Learn more about Philadelphia2035 and the Upper Northwest District. What's Next? Your input will be incorporated into the draft plan, which will be presented at the City Planning Commission on July 17th, open to the public! The Draft Plan will then be published on www.phila2035.org/upper-northwest. From July 17 - September 14 they will accept comments from the public on the Draft Plan and make changes as appropriate. The final version of the plan will be presented for adoption at the September 18th City Planning Commission meeting, open to the public! Once the plan is adopted, City agencies, such as the Streets Department and the Department of Parks & Recreation use the recommendations to guide their projects and capital funding. Community groups, non-profit organizations and institutions also work to make the recommendations a reality. City Planning Commission and City Council work with community groups to implement the zoning recommendations.
