Another huge development proposed for Point Breeze

UPDATE: A ridiculous flier is being distributed to oppose this 22-home development, as well as a previously proposed 48-home project near 20th and Wharton. The meeting is Monday, April 28 at 6 p.m. at Gospel Temple Baptist Church, 1327 S. 19th St. An agenda for the meeting by South Philadelphia Homes Inc. is here.
