Philly Bike Share and Upcoming SOSNA Events!
Friends and Neighbors,
Let's bring Philly Bike Share to South of South! The City of Philadelphia needs resident input to determine 60 locations for the Bike Share Program, which launches in the spring of 2015! Please vote for locations in our neighborhood, as well as locations that work for YOU! For more information visit Philadelphia's bike share website.
If you would like to apply for a street tree PHS and your local Tree Tenders Group are currently accepting applications! Contact the SOSNA office to get an application and visit the Southwest Center City Tree Planters Facebook page to stay abreast of greening efforts in the area!
Our friends at FoCA (Friends of Chester Arthur) are having a general meeting today, Tuesday, September 23 at 7PM, at Chester A. Arthur School on 20th and Catharine. This is a great opportunity to find out about the school and some exciting new academic initiatives, as well as what you can do to the support Chester Arthur this year.
