Hi North Delaware Steering Committee Members,
Next Tuesday, January 19th, I will be presenting the DRAFT North Delaware District Plan to the City Planning Commission.  
The meeting will be held at 1515 Arch Street on the 18th floor in the same room where we had our steering committee meetings. The meeting will begin at 1 and the presentation should be on the earlier end of the agenda.  Following the presentation there will be time for questions and comments from the Commissioners and the public.
The presentation will kick off the comment period which will end on February 19th. The draft plan should be posted in its entirety on the website on the 19th and comments can be sent directly to me.  Once the comment period is over the team will review and consider all of the comments and make adjustments as necessary to the plan. Our plan is to present the final draft to the PCPC for adoption at the March Commission meeting on March 15th.
If you have any questions or comments please let me know.
Thanks, Larissa

Remember that there were some serious proposals for  alterations to the zoning in East Torresdale that were presented at the last North Delaware District Meeting.  And remember that City Council is the body that can ,make these changes happen.  Please attend this meeting if at all possible.  These are the proposals listed below:

City Planning is proposing to change the actual zoning classifications of several properties within the ETCA boundaries from "Residential" to "Commercial and Industrial". These properties include:
1. The entire Morrissey property at Frankford and Linden,
2. Maggie's property on Delaware Avenue,
3. The Stadium Bar at Linden and State, 
4. The Linden Pub/Dagwoods at Linden and Torresdale, and
5. Several other properties that are being used commercially, but are actually zoned "Residential". Should these changes go into effect, I believe the repercussions will negatively impact ETCA and the residents who live near these areas.
