Reminder- Our December Zoning Meeting is Tonight

Just a reminder, our December zoning meeting will take place tonight at 7PM at the 1st Dist Police Station, 2301 S 24th St (between Wolf & Ritner). We will hear from Angela Di Prima-Bucci & Michael Bucci about their proposal to convert the property at 2019 South Beechwood St. (between Snyder & McKean, 20th & 21st St.) into a two 2 family household.

The project consists of the reconstruction of a deteriorated rear wall, interior renovations and the addition of a rooftop deck. (We met with the property owners at our November meeting, the rooftop will not be a traditional "deck" but rather a green roof/garden space.)

A zoning refusal was issued as the property is 6 square feet short of what is allowed for a 2 family household. A second community meeting is being held in order to give area residents more time to give input into the project.

All interested parties and community members are welcome.
