Councilman Kenyatta Johnson introduced a new bill just last week that will rezone the property from a residential and commercial property to park space.
Although the rezoning of this property allows for more security for this project’s completion, it’s still going to a be a while before we see a park here.
More from PlanPhilly:
SOSNA currently manages the space under an urban-gardening agreement with PRA. It has so far managed to raise about $75,000 toward the construction of a park at the site. The Goldenberg Group, which developed the new Carpenter Square townhomes diagonal from Carpenter Green, has committed $50,000 in matching funds to help SOSNA get across the finish line. Maser Consulting is contributing design work free of charge. SOSNA is also looking to see whether there’s any money available from the city.
