As new members of the Philadelphia Crosstown ...

As new members of the Philadelphia Crosstown Coalition Cobbs Creek Neighbors co-signed a petition asking that the review period for the Inclusionary Housing Bill (#170678) be extended so civic association and other RCO members "can have the time to digest its implications for our neighborhoods", after petitioning the Rules Committee the bill unfortunately passed without a recommendation and without a suspension of the rules but this means we can come up with some alternatives or amendments in the new year. The bill, introduced by Councilwoman María Quiñones-Sánchez, "was touted as the antidote that would help neutralize gentrification" however the Coalition had some concerns about some of the language of the bill. In an effort to keep you, our neighbors, in the loop we wanted to share some articles about this bill and the review process for your review. We will share links in the comments, please read them at your leisure and feel free to comment with any questions or concerns. We'd love to have a dialogue about this process and what it means for affordable housing in our community. Article links in comments.

GENTRIFICATION

Stop it now. I believe you have done enough to hurt the African Americans homeowners by restoring/renovating, or buying property and charging and exorbitant amount to rent or purchase said property. You have medical buildings everywhere throughout the city, and i for one see exactly what you are doing. You have no shame or equality built in our your method(s).

    Mice gnawing on dried fish, an unapproved George Foreman grill close Philly restaurants
    It's the holiday season and you have to expect everyone to indulge, including mice. There were reports of the little critters in snack bags, gnawing on dried fish and roaming the candy isles. Couple those citations with expired bacon, dented cans, dirty deli slicers, an unapproved George Foreman grill and you have this week's Clean Plates report.

Look how far kids can go when they are given opportunities to grow, learn and do! Here's a great story about an amazing young lady who pursued both college and high school at the same time thanks to a program at Community College of Philadelphia and support from her high school Girard Academic Music Program. (With an honorary mention to Rep. Joanna McClinton who inspired her to take an interest in law.)
