Inga Saffron's story last month outlined a lo...

Inga Saffron's story last month outlined a lot of the development changing the landscape of Mt. Airy. One project not covered was the one proposed for the corner of Cresheim Road and Sedgwick Street. Pictured here, an investor who bought 7000 & 7002 Cresheim would have torn down two intact, recently-inhabited houses on the end of a full-block row of two-story rowhomes and replaced them with a three-story, eight-unit apartment building. Several years ago, unbeknownst to its residents, that block's zoning was changed from single-family residential to multi-family RM-1, so this proposal was allowed BY RIGHT. Thanks to an appeal from Weatham Town Watch, on the grounds that the proposal did not conform with the setbacks of the neighboring houses, the permit was revoked. This entire process underscores the importance of appropriate zoning and planning. And hey, whattaya know, the Philadelphia City Planning Commission has been studying our area and will release its Upper Northwest District Plan, encompassing Mt. Airy, Germantown, and Chestnut Hill, NEXT MONDAY, June 18th, at Lovett Library & Park. As the final one of 18 districts in the City's 2035 Comprehensive Plan, this is a big deal. The Commission will have two sessions to choose from: 3:30pm and 6pm. (They're the same session, just two times to choose from.) Plan to be there, then stick around for our Music Monday with Danie Jackson, the Ramble Pizza food truck, and beer tastings from Attic Brewing Company.

    Go Mt. Airy
