Connect to YOUR community! Attend Lower SW Philly Public Planning Meeting November 9

Come on out to the first public meeting for community planning in Lower SW Philadelphia! The meeting will be held on Monday, November 9, 2015 at Ezekiel Baptist Church, 5701 Grays Avenue, Philadelphia, from 6:00pm – 7:30pm.

This public planning meeting provides a forum for residents of Lower SW Philadelphia, including Eastwick, to contribute suggestions, ideas and input in the future of YOUR community, including zoning, city-owned land and facilities, and public investments in the district.

Sponsored by the Philadelphia City Planning Commission, public meetings facilitate critically-important local citizen engagement in district planning. This comprehensive, multi-year process is part of the Philadelphia 2035 plan, which makes recommendations to create a more livable, healthy, and economically viable city in the future. Goals include:

  • Guide Zoning Remapping – future land use and zoning maps.
  • Focus Areas – examine underutilized spaces.
  • City Facilities Planning – study location and effectiveness of facilities such as libraries and playgrounds.
  • Public Landscapes – recommend improvements to streetscapes, landscapes, parks and plazas.
  • Community Health Improvements – improve access to healthy foods, physical activity and healthy lifestyles.
  • Coordinate Neighborhood Plans – review previous community plans and set priorities for future planning.

Eastwick Friends & Neighbors Coalition (EFNC) is committed to active engagement in planning our community – we hope you are too!  Please join us at the public planning meeting on November 9.
