Plazapalooza and Upcoming Zoning

Friends & Neighbors, 
Plazapalooza is going down tomorrow! Don't miss all of the fun and the kick-off of another season of concerts, food trucks and froyo at the Triangles Plaza. Prepare yourself and check out the lineup and the beers on tap at Grace Tavern.
We want to give a HUGE shout out and THANK YOU to our amazing Plazapalooza sponsors. Because of their generosity we were able to plan our largest Plazapalooza event to date. Our local businesses and business owners truly care about our neighborhood and making it a great place to live. Help us show them some love and stop in!
Check out the links below for upcoming SOSNA meetings: the Broad & Washington Community Meeting and the May Zoning Committee Meeting.
The next SOSNA Zoning Committee meeting will take place at the SOSNA office, 1901 Christian Street, at 7PM on May 18, 2016.
The SOSNA Zoning Committee always meets the third Wednesday of every month starting at 7 PM.
1. 932 S 23rd Street: Application for partial demolition of rear one and two-story portion of existing structure, the erection of a rear three-story addition and third-story addition over existing two-story structure, with roof deck and pilot house.
2. 753 and 755 S 17th Street: Application for the legalization of the increase (occupied area) of the building foot print and a first, second and third floor addition as previously approved.
3. 1513 Bainbridge Street: Application for a fourth-story addition, a roof deck above the fourth story addition (without pilot house) and a roof deck above the existing third-story (front).
In April, Councilman Johnson introduced a bill that would allow for the parcel at the northwest corner of Broad Street and Washington Ave to be redeveloped to include a commercial / residential project. SOSNA will hold a final community meeting on the proposed project on Monday, May 16th at 7pm at the SOSNA office. To view the most recent set of plans, click here.
Our neighborhood public schools are in the spotlight for the South Philly School Tour on May 17th. Local business owners and realtors are invited to tour four schools, west of Broad Street, to check out and all of the great programs, clubs, teachers and leaders they have to offer!

The PHS Pop Up Garden is returning to South Street West for the summer 2016 season! But they need your help to get ready for opening day! PHS is looking for volunteers to help plant flowers (and tackle a few more hands-on projects like painting, mulching, and furniture placement) at our Pop Up Garden, located at 15th & South Street.
