First public session on Lower Northeast District Plan set for April 3

The first public meeting on the District Plan for the Lower Northeast – including Frankford, Northwood, Oxford Circle,  Summerdale, and Lawncrest – is set for April 3.

Philadelphia adopted the  city-wide portion of the new comprehensive plan, Philadelphia2035, last year. The 18 district level plans will provide more detailed goals for groups of similar neighborhoods. The Lower Northeast plan will make recommendations for zoning changes, city-owned land and facilities, and public investments.

The meeting, open to all residents, business owners and property owners, will be held at 6 pm at Friends Hospital, 4641 Roosevelt Blvd. Free parking is available.

To learn more see the flier or visit the Philadelphia2035 website.  The city-wide portion of the plan can be read at the website, as can the texts of the first two district plans for the Lower South and West Park districts. The city planning commission is expected to vote on the adoption of those two plans at its March 20 meeting.
