In this year of Philadelphia’s overcoming naysayers after years of disappointment, those of us working along the Delaware River are reminded that we must never lose faith in our vision for reclaiming one of our city’s greatest underutilized assets: our waterfront.
The great progress that we've made is facing a new challenge by a proposal for gas station at the corner of Tasker Street and Columbus Boulevard in South Philadelphia, a development that is inconsistent and incompatible with the success we’ve had in reconnecting our waterfront with our neighborhoods. We need your support in continuing to build a properly connected, world-class waterfront for all to enjoy. For more details about the Master Plan and this proposed development, please read the recent op-ed in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
By filling out the letter below, you are showing that you support the Delaware River Waterfront Corp's opposition to the specific variance that is being put forth by Tower Investments this Wednesday, April 18th at the Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) at 2PM. We will be printing out all of the responses and introducing them as part of our testimony. If you're interested in participating further, please join us at the hearing at the ZBA at 1515 Arch Street, 18th Floor. Help us stand up for the Master Plan and our waterfront.
