“Green Streets” Projects Underway


Sidewalk improvements and new trees

The Philadelphia Water Dept. has begun two small but important Green Streets projects in our neighborhood. They’ll be installing sidewalk bump-outs and tree trenches outside the NL Community Center at 3rd & Fairmount, and Bodine High School on George St. These projects improve storm water management, ease pedestrian street crossings, aid driver visibility when turning, and make things look nicer.

PGW is out now doing preliminary work, and actual construction should start later this month. Questions: Lara Kelly, NLNA Quality of Life Coordinator, trash@nlna.org.
