From the Passyunk Avenue Revitalization Corporation (PARC) comes the following announcement:

WHEN: APRIL 4TH, 2012 AT 7:00 PM

Dear Neighbor,
The Passyunk Avenue Revitalization Corporation recently purchased the property located at 1537 South 11th St. (11th & Tasker). We invite you to attend a meeting at the property to review the plans for the property.

Summary of details:
We wish to renovate the ground floor commercial space and fit it out for a sit-down restaurant. The restaurant would seat @35 people inside and during the warmer months of the year seat an additional 18 people outside. Plans for the façade and interior space will be available for your review.

The apartments on the 2nd & 3rd floor will remain.

A presentation of the plans for the space will be conducted. After the presentation we will ask for comments and input from those in attendance. Your feedback will be valuable to us as we move forward with the project. We look forward to seeing you.

Passyunk Square Civic Association Presents

Good schools ⇔ Good neighborhood

Tuesday, April 3, 6:30pm
SPOAC – E. Passyunk and Dickinson
An Open Forum About The Accomplishments and Challenges of the Schools In Passyunk Square

We all know how important good schools are to keeping our neighborhood safe, vibrant and healthy. But what can we do to help, especially in this time of shrinking budgets and administrative upheaval?

Hear from a panel including:
Lisa Kaplan, Principal at Jackson Elementary
Mike Wang, Managing Director of the Philadelphia School Partnership
Christina Grimes, PSCA Education Committee
Tamar Oded, PhillyCORE Leaders

We’ll be brainstorming to determine ways that the Passyunk Square Civic Association can better support our schools and recruiting new members for our Education Committee.

Can’t find a sitter? Not a problem we will have someone on site to lend a hand.

Refreshments provided by Plenty and Belle Cakery.
