*POSTPONED* General/Quarterly SGCA Members Meeting

  • January 09, 2024
  • 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
  • St. Andrew Lithuanian Church Hall, 19th & North Streets

** Given the forecast of heavy rain and high winds during the day today and throughout this evening, we are postponing our General Membership Meeting to a date in the near future. **

** Please keep an eye out for the announcement of the new date, and stay safe and dry today! **

We are honored to have Councilmember at Large Isaiah Thomas as our main speaker.

In his 2nd term as City Councilmember, and as the newly elected Democratic Whip, Councilmember Thomas is part of a vibrant new group of elected officials reshaping the landscape of Philadelphia’s governing body.

At Tuesday’s meeting, Councilmember Thomas will talk about priorities for City Council’s work on new initiatives with newly elected Mayor Cherelle Parker, including her recent issue of a public safety emergency, and how they could affect Spring Garden residents and businesses. He will also touch on his work as Chair of the Streets Committee, and how we can better address basic quality of life issues throughout the neighborhood.

Also on hand at Tuesday’s meeting will be the Executive Director of the Parkway Council, Nicholas Anderson, to present the Council’s “Reimagine the Benjamin Franklin Parkway” current plan - a multi-phase plan to transform the Parkway into Philadelphia’s greatest public space. The plan is a joint project also involving Philadelphia’s Parks & Recreation and Office of Transportation, Infrastructure, and Sustainability.

Please join us to hear more about these important and exciting plans for the future of Philadelphia, and how they will impact the Spring Garden neighborhood!
