ZONING MEETING TONIGHT @ 6:30 pm Did you know that EPBN hosts monthly Zoning meetings on the second Wednesday of every month? All are invited to come hear about proposed projects, and if you're a near neighbor of one of the projects on the schedule, you may cast a vote in support of or against the project. The tally of those votes is submitted to the Zoning Board of Adjustments and considered when the applicant appears for their official hearing. If you want your voice heard, an EPBN zoning meeting is the right place to start. Tonight's meeting includes 3 properties, including one major project that will have a substantial impact on the neighborhood: 1258 S 17th Street - Legalization of a 6-unit residential building 1706 S. 16th Street - Open Space variance 1433 Federal Street - Permission to allow an exisiting 39-unit building, plus an additional 4 duplexes with commercial on the ground floor, facing Federal. Come be an integral part of the process! TONIGHT - Wednesday, Jan 10, 6:30pm South Philadelphia Library 1700 S Broad (@ Morris)

    Philadelphian brings more 'Unity in the Community' during the holidays with NBA's Ben Simmons
    South Philly native, Anton Moore, and the NBA's and Philadelphia 76ers' rising star, Ben Simmons, connected recently to assist those in need and spread some holiday cheer. "We worked on this for three weeks and we had to keep it a secret from the families until the day of the event," Moore said of the four families taken on a "surprise shopping spree at Target."

We would like to give a big thank you to the Philadelphia 76'ers, Amy Heaver, and Ben Simmons, for partnering with my organization @unityinthecommunity to take four families from our community on a surprise shopping spree at Target today.We worked on this for three weeks and we had to keep it a secret from the families until the day of the event. The look on the families faces was priceless.Each family was able to spend close to $1500.00 each. Thank you to each and every person that nominated a family for our Operation Holiday Help Initiative. We appreciate it so much. One down, One to go! #Gameon

For the 8th year in the row, we were able to surprise six families from our community with our Operation Holiday Help Initiative, despite the rain. It was easy for someone not to show up because of the rain, but people still showed up to show their commitment to our community. We would like to give a big thank you to each and every sponsor that participated in this initiative and of course the residents that nominated these families and made us aware of their hardship.In addition to that, Thank you to Mayor Kenney and his team for making this event a success.The families really appreciated it so much. @ Down South Philly

    South Philly building gets nod for National Register of Historic Places
    The future of the former Frankford Chocolate Factory may be unknown, but its past and its architectural character were enough to earn it a timeless spot on the National Register of Historic Places. And that could provide just the stimulus the building needs to reinvigorate its on-again, off-again redevelopment efforts.
