Top 5 things to watch in NW Philly this week

Here’s a look at what’s to come on NewsWorks this week:

1. Parishioners from all five Catholic churches in Manayunk may finally hear the details of a much-anticipated consolidation plan the Archdiocese of Philadelphia floated late last year. Check back next week to see what the archdiocese has in store.

2. Onion Flats, a Northern Liberties-based development company, will publicly present its revised plans for a mixed-use project in East Falls Monday night at the Falls Presbyterian Church. The city’s Redevelopment Authority tapped Onion Flats last December to develop the site just off of Kelly Drive.

3. Members of the Chestnut Hill Community Association will discuss Balance Chestnut Hill’s move to Willow Grove Avenue Thursday night. The yoga and fitness center’s relocation plans are on hold for now as the building’s owner looks to settle a last-minute gripe made by one of the neighborhood’s biggest power brokers.

4. The city’s Zoning Board of Adjustments is set to hear arguments on Wednesday concerning the size of the store signs at Chelten Plaza in Germantown. The recently erected strip-mall development has been a source of controversy in the neighborhood. Check back next week for the ZBA’s decision.

5. The Holy Cross School in Mt. Airy will hold an open house Wednesday. The Archdiocese recently removed the school from the chopping block. Check back for details on how school officials plan to keep the doors open for years to come.
