School Reform Commission weighs next step in Mayfair Memorial Playground rebuild

During its regularly scheduled meeting this week, the School Reform Commission is expected to weigh in Wednesday on the next step in rebuilding the Mayfair Memorial Playground.

A vote will be taken on whether or not to approve an $80,000 gift from playground-building organization KaBOOM! Pending a supportive vote, the School District of Philadelphia will sign a letter of permission to build. Mayfair community members will then be able to schedule their design and build days to re-install a playground at the Rowland Avenue and Vista Street site.

The SRC meeting begins at 2 p.m. in the auditorium at the School District of Philadelphia, 440 N. Broad St. Meetings are open to the public.
