Public Meeting June 9th on Manayunk Bridge Trail Design

Thursday, June 9 at 7pm, the public is invited to meet with consultants to share their thoughts on the design of the proposed Manayunk Bridge trail. The design team, led by Whitman, Requardt and Associates, will host the meeting which will be held at the North Light Community Center, 175 Green Lane. As the design process moves forward, the team seeks to actively engage the public in shaping the look and feel of the trail. “We will meet with community groups and the public this spring and summer to get their ideas, share alternatives, and collaboratively develop the design,” said Jeff Riegner, leader of the WR&A Design Team. The meeting on June 9 is the first publicmeeting held by the group for this purpose.
