    Ori Feibush plans homes and shops at Chocolate Factory site in South Philly
    Developer Ori Feibush says his proposal would be a big step toward transforming Washington Avenue, west of Broad Street, from a strip of warehouses and blighted industrial buildings into a dense commercial and residential corridor binding the revitalized neighborhoods to its north and south.

Thanks to Meeka Outlaw for letting the neighborhood know. Philadelphia Gas Works' contractors are scheduled to replace underground natural gas pipeline in your zip code at the following locations: 1400 S 30th Street 1500 - 1600 S 27th Street 1700 S 28th Street 2700 Morris Street 2900 Reed Street 2900 Gerritt Street VIEW MAP HERE - 4x-4909 Construction Hours: Daily work hours are based on the City's posted hours of operation; Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.; or 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for specific sections. What to expect: 5 Steps Service Interruptions and Re-Lighting Appliances: If you are a PGW customer, there will be a temporary interruption in your service on the day your home or business is connected to the newly installed gas main. A PGW contractor will leave a notice on your door stating the anticipated date of service interruption at your home or business. It is not necessary for you to be at home during the day while this work is being done from the street to the outside of the building. However, PGW and its contractors will need access to your home or business once the work is completed to re-light the pilot lights on all of your gas appliances and check that your system is safely operating. The re-light and safety check will be scheduled directly with you. We appreciate your cooperation as we work every day to improve the safety and reliability of natural gas service delivery in Philadelphia. If you have questions, contact our Public Affairs office at feedback@pgworks.com. Thank you. Philadelphia Gas Works

Recycle bins

Why is it that the city wants us to recycle but if you go to get a recycle bin you are only allowed one? And you must show ID to even get that one! It doesn’t make sense to me. I haven’t seen any of the ones with a lid anywhere either. Id like to have that so that your recycled property isn’t blowing all over the streets.
