    A gnawed bag of raw poultry with mouse feces on the package in a walk-in cooler is just gross. Knowing there could be meat particles on the ceiling will have me looking up from now on. And, the person in charge at another restaurant placed his hand inside a rice container after handling a container with mice droppings....ick.

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.

Can't make it to the meeting? From July 17- September 14, you can comment on the draft plan online: www.phila2035.org/upper-northwest. What's a Plan?

Your input will be incorporated into the draft plan, which will be presented at the City Planning Commission on July 17th, open to the public! The Draft Plan will then be published on www.phila2035.org/upper-northwest. From July 17 - September 14 they will accept comments from the public on the Draft Plan and make changes as appropriate. The final version of the plan will be presented for adoption at the September 18th City Planning Commission meeting, open to the public! Once the plan is adopted, City agencies, such as the Streets Department and the Department of Parks & Recreation use the recommendations to guide their projects and capital funding. Community groups, non-profit organizations and institutions also work to make the recommendations a reality. City Planning Commission and City Council work with community groups to implement the zoning recommendations.

Herbicides at Carpenters Woods

I live across the street from Carpenter's Woods, along the Thumb.

I find it curious that, to contain invasive plants at Carpenter's Woods, an herbicide is sprayed whose active ingredient, triclopyr acid, offers "mild toxicity to birds" and which kills non-invasive plants, while killing and/or toxifying the berries that surround the Thumb, that birds eat.

Last summer three little signs were posted at the Thumb which were not sufficient to warn my landlady, her dog, and myself that walking the sidewalk might cause irritation to skin or eyes. Both of which happened.

Perhaps others were affected, too.

As an ecologist who has taught at two universities, I am not yet convinced that destroying invasives at the perimeter of this park is of greater benefit to biodiversity here than the damage that may be caused to birds, berries, and people here.
