Occupy Philly drafting maps for possible Thomas Paine Plaza relocation

    As Occupy Philly considers its move across the street to Thomas Paine Plaza, members have been drafting maps for what the set-up should look like.

    They’re on Draft No. 5, which City Paper posted today. Ideas are being solicited, but if the move is going to happen, the city has some requirements. Anyone looking to add their two cents has to consider the following:


    keep all of the entryways accessible
    measure a 20 foot fire safety zone on all sides of the building

    Occupiers moved today, albeit temporarily, to allow for the same removal of scaffolding from the City Hall tower. It was there for repairs to damage caused by a summer earthquake.
