Have you noticed that the outdoor seating plaza outside Malelani Cafe Mt. Airy has been torn up this week? That's actually a good thing - it's the fourth of six pocket parks coming together on Germantown Avenue courtesy of the Mt. Airy Business Improvement District. You may have noticed the improvements on the corner of Germantown & Sedgwick outside the Mt. Airy Playground, and you've probably seen the new landscaping and Little Free Library outside of Fino's on the corner of Carpenter Lane. On Tuesday, come out to the original - Trolley Car Park, between the SEPTA brake yard and Mermaid Lounge - for a reception and fundraiser for the pocket parks to learn more. There's no obligation to donate, but donations help to add amenities like benches, tables, and the like.

Plans also identify how to turn the ideas in the plan into action. Once completed, City Planning works with other city departments, partners, and community groups to make the plan happen.
