Property Reader Wonders What the Big Deal Is With Washington Avenue, Volunteers to Be on Planning Commission

Regarding tonight’s City Planning Commission meeting to present the Washington Avenue Roadway Design Study, Property reader Joe Kazmierski comments:

Not privy to all facts/concerns – but I’ve lived within a few blocks of Washington Avenue to 10 years. I’ve lived in many other cities and I’ve known much more troubling thoroughfares – from NYC to Florida to Philly. What’s the big deal? I have never encountered even a mini ‘nightmare’ on this street. Can someone point me to specifics? Or, get me on the City Planning Commission? I am smart, mature and savvy. I care about this city and KNOW of improvements that should be and can be made to much of our infrastructure – realistically.

For those who are interested in attending, it’s tonight at 6 p.m. at the Mummers Museum (1100 S. Second St., Philadelphia 19147)
