PHILADELPHIA UNIVERSITY’s INSTITUTIONAL FACILITIES PLAN

The University cannot currently make changes to their property without requesting variances from the registered community organizations and the City, requiring multiple meetings for input, letters of recommendation, and approval. Approval by the community of this plan would allow that which is on the plan to occur without additional community meetings. The plan discussed here has been in process and iterated on between the community and University for five years.

There are citizens who are requesting that the dedication of permanent green spaces be included in the plan.

8pm Adjourn Formal Meeting

Engage on Facebook, Nextdoor, and Slack.

EastFallsLocal collage whos in charge here

EFF’s officers have a history of working together on community projects. The photos above show Steve and Ryan at the Krail House Rebuild,  and Felicite with Lucky, aka “Charlie” an injured stray who turned up in a Bowman backyard, eventually reunited with his owners after months fostered at BuLogics.

FUN FACT:  The year she bought her home, Felicite (& her family) let us host a giant historical party for the neighborhood in it.

With proven success generating positive energy in East Falls, this team’s momentum is building already. Hope to see you soon!
