SOSNA February Zoning Agenda

Friends & Neighbors, 
Do you envision every street in South of South being clean, walkable, and lined with green trees? Help us make this a reality and join us on Tuesday, February 17th for our Clean & Green Committee meeting. The Clean & Green committee is striving to make our neighborhood a beautiful and litter-free place to live, work and play. The committee is in need of more dedicated volunteers to help encourage and educate our neighborhood residents on how to be, well, cleaner and greener! At next week's meeting we will discuss our anti-litter strategy as well as give an update on the status of Carpenter Green, South of South's next park! Join Clean & Green and be part of the solution to litter in our neighborhood!
Wednesday, February 18th is the next meeting of SOSNA's Zoning Committee. We have one item on the agenda. There will be an informational presentation (no vote will be taken) for a project at 746 S 16th Street. This initial meeting is an opportunity to collect input and initial feedback from the community. Please plan on attending to ask questions, comment on the project and have a say in our neighborhood's development. 

The January SOSNA Zoning Committee meeting will take place at Shiloh Baptist Church, 2040 Christian Street, at 7PM.
The SOSNA Zoning Committee always meets the third Wednesday of every month starting at 7 PM.
746-748 S 16th Street: Application for a six story building, containing 10 residential units and 8 off-street parking spaces. No vote will be taken at this time. This presentation is for informational purposes only.  All neighborhood residents are invited to ask questions and give their feedback.
The Clean & Green meeting takes place the third Tuesday of every month at the SOSNA office, 1901 Christian Street, from 7-8pm.  Ongoing projects include:

The City of Philadelphia’s Percent for Art Program through the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy (OACCE), in collaboration with Philadelphia Parks and Recreation have announced a competition to commission a site-specific artwork at the forthcoming Urban Youth Academy at the Marian Anderson Recreation Center. The commission is part of a $1.1 million facility expansion of the recreation center.
Our friends at Stanton Elementary School are starting a Lego club! The Lego Club is collecting new and gently used legos as well as donations for lego purchases. You can drop off legos or a donation to the lego fund at the SOSNA office at anytime. You can also order legos from Stanton's online Amazon wish list
