    Philly's proposed mixed-income housing bill, explained
    Next week, City Council will host a public hearing on a proposed mixed-income housing bill that has caused a spirited debate between housing advocates and developers over the past few months. Bill No. 170678 was proposed in June, just before City Council dismissed for summer recess.

    Blackwell proposes transit oriented development around Provident Mutual Life Insurance building
    On Thursday, West Philadelphia's Jannie Blackwell became the first City Council member to take advantage of new zoning language to promote transit oriented development (TOD). Blackwell introduced a bill to encourage dense developments around the Market-Frankford line's 46th Street Station. That Blackwell is the first council member to embrace TOD in their district is a bit of a surprise.

Rasheedah Phillips : Managing Attorney of Com...

Rasheedah Phillips : Managing Attorney of Community Legal Services: I joined with PACDC Policy Director Beth McConnell on an op-ed in Philly Inquirer about a new law that would create development of affordable housing units. In my. neighborhood (known as Brewerytown) community members have consistently been vocal at monthly community meetings about the want and need for affordable housing in our area so that long term community members and young families can have an opportunity to continue to live in and give back to North Philly. For me personally, I first moved to North Philly 15 years ago when i started as an undergrad at Temple and have intentionally chosen to come back to and stay in North Philly as both a renter and a homeowner. I bought my home 7 years ago next month in Brewerytown and as a young, single mother, first time homebuyer it was a struggle but it would have been next to impossible to buy that same house in 2017 or to be a working, parenting college student renting with the way property taxes, development, gentrification, home prices, rental prices have risen and proliferated. This is beyond necesssary and overdue and it is workable if we work together to make it so. I look forward to continuing to work with city council, housing advocates, developers, and community members to continue to support and develop these policies. Hit me up if you're interested in more info. http://www.philly.com/philly/opinion/commentary/affordable-housing-philadelphia-low-income-maria-quinones-sanchez-darrell-clarke-20171117.html http://www.philly.com/philly/opinion/commentary/affordable-housing-philadelphia-low-income-maria-quinones-sanchez-darrell-clarke-20171117.html

Jean Hugo was born in Paris on this day in 1894. Great-grandson of author Victor Hugo, he was a painter, illustrator, and theatre designer whose work brought him into contact with some of the most influential figures of 20th century art: Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Erik Satie, Marcel Proust, and many more. In addition to avant-garde theatre, he notably designed the costumes and sets for Carl Dreyer’s film “The Passion of Joan of Arc.” His personal work was modest in scale and dream-like in tone, mingling the influences of Henri Rousseau, Nicolas Poussin, and the Italian Primitives. He produced quiet, light-filled landscapes and scenes of magical realism like this small tempera painting from 1931. 🎨 Jean Hugo. The Flight (Beginning of the End of the World), 1931

    Home security? Some opposed to Domb's bill to securitize liens on tax deadbeats
    WHAT WOULD "SECURITIZATION" DO? Domb proposes to securitize real estate tax liens. That would entail transferring all of the city-owned liens into a corporate entity or trust (created specifically for the securitization), which would then issue bonds - or debt securities, hence "securitization" - based on the anticipated income streams from those liens.
