    Renovated Free Library branches aim to get more people in the door
    The gleaming, white Lillian Marrero Library on Lehigh Avenue is easily the most magnificent building in the Fairhill neighborhood. And that's long been a problem for the Free Library. The building was a gift from Andrew Carnegie, the early 20th century philanthropist, who believed that community libraries could help lift people out of poverty.

    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

    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.
