Philly Council holds rec center violence hearing, zoo gets new animal trails

    Good morning, Feeders!

    Kevin McCorry is off to hear about an alternative plan to Philadelphia’s School Reform Commission.

    Lizz Fiedler will attend today’s Philadelphia City Council hearing on rec center violence. It’s the only hearing of the summer.
    Carolyn Beeler will get more details on the Philadelphia Zoo’s new trail network. These trails are for the animals.

    And Peter Crimmins is finishing up his story on Philly skateboarders and skateparks, and is reaching out to a New Jersey native who somehow made a career transition from sculpting to space.
