December 2: New bus shelter designs | ODB McDonald’s historic marker | Graffiti Pier at night

Inga Saffron has some positive things to say about Lindsey Scannapieco’s plans for the redevelopment of the shuttered Bok School in South Philly.

Bids to reconstruct the city’s traffic signal center are due this Thursday. It’s not the most exciting topic, but traffic signaling improvements are key to reducing traffic congestion, maintaining bus schedules, and creating bikeable and walkable street conditions.

We finally have a rendering of the new bus shelter designs by Digsau. The advertising deal would add 282 new shelters, for a total of 600.

The Change.org petition to stop the carve-out of Philadelphia from state regulations legalizing ride-sharing services is up to 642 supporters.

The petition to designate a historical market on the site of late Wu Tang Clan rapper ODB’s famed arrest at a Gray’s Ferry McDonald’s has 792 supporters.
