Central Delaware Advocacy Group warns council candidates of pressure for development

    In one of many debates going on around the city before the primary election, First District City Council candidates had to answer to the Central Delaware Advocacy Group yesterday. The four were warned they must follow in the footsteps of retiring Councilman Frank DiCicco.


    NewsWorks partner PlanPhilly has video responses from Vern Anastasio, Joe Grace, Jeff Hornstein and Mark Squilla, who were asked questions for their visions of the Central Delaware Waterfront.

    Responses dealt with greening issues, road access to the waterfront and tourist attractions along the river.
