Quick Hits: April General Membership Meeting

There was a general membership meeting at the EOM that covered a variety of topics concerning the neighborhood.

Here are some quick highlights of some of the recent neighborhood developments.

Two Street Warehouse Fire:
As you may already be aware, the large warehouse containing and illegal auto shop and Mummer regalia that burned down will be turned in to 11 town homes. The meeting tonight briefly covered the progress of the project. While no renderings were shown, board members mentioned that the neighbors were "satisfied" with the proposal and that there will be more to come in the near future. 
Saint John's Demolition, 3rd and Reed St:
While the demo permit has been granted, the plans for future condos has not yet been approved. Developers are in the process petitioning the neighbors, although a woman in attendance mentioned that neighbors on Earp and 3rd Sts. have not all been notified. It's in "proposal phase" as of now but the building itself has been sold to developers.
Sacred Heart Officially Becoming Christopher Columbus:
The meeting also revealed that the old Sacred Heart School is indeed set to become Christopher Columbus School. Rosemary Dougherty, Chief Executive of Christopher Columbus, mentioned at the time of the initial announcement that they would be "adding to the school." It would have to be a quick turn around as the board mentioned that the school will be ready this coming September.
