Opinion : Mayor Kenney never should have met with Meek Mill | Ronnie Polaneczky http://www.philly.com/philly/columnists/ronnie_polaneczky/meek-mill-kenney-probation-prison-visit-jay-z-brinkley-krasner-new-trial-ronnie-polaneczky-20180419.html

    Mayor Kenney never should have met with Meek Mill | Ronnie Polaneczky - Philly
    It's been a week since Mayor Kenney had a one-on-one visit with Meek Mill in jail. It bugged me then, it bugs me now, and I've finally figured out why. Throughout his political career, Kenney has been Philly's Jimmy from the Block, reliably reading the pulse of the populace when it comes to calling out the disloyal, the silly, and the abusive.

    Planning officials put proposed community outreach rules on hold
    On Tuesday, the Philadelphia Planning Commission put a hold on City Council legislation intended to overhaul community notification requirements about zoning changes. The proposed regulation was initially introduced as a public-safety minded response to a recent North Philadelphia housefire that killed four residents of a rooming house.

    New Regional Rail Proposal Would Connect Phoenixville To Philly
    PHOENIXVILLE, PA - Preliminary talks are officially underway to bring passenger rail service to Phoenixville. Developers are proposing two alternatives. The first option, which has been formally presented, involves extending the Manayunk/Norristown line into Phoenixville. Because the infrastructure for this line is already largely in place, it is the cheaper and quicker alternative.

    Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross hasn't wavered: The officers who recently arrested two African-American men inside a Center City Starbucks did "absolutely nothing wrong." Criminal justice experts agree, but say the charged incident could have ended differently. And probably should have.

    Francisville is booming. The community is feuding.
    Francisville is under construction.Walk down almost any street in this North Philadelphia neighborhood, and there are houses-or multi-unit buildings-getting built. Fences and ladders jut out onto the sidewalk, annoying residents. Community meetings get loud with complaints about everything from unwanted new neighbors to rising rents to cowboy contractors.
