As you may have heard at Ridge Park Civic Association’s recent general membership meeting, Councilman Curtis Jones has authored a bill requesting the striking of Cinnaminson Street between Mansion Street and Smick Street. This is the reverse of what happened four years ago, when Councilwoman Carol Ann Campbell tried to legally open Cinnaminson Street in order to pave the way for development of Germany Hill.
Councilman Jones’ bill will come up for review by City Council’s Streets Committee at a hearing to be held on Thursday, March 15, beginning at 3PM. The hearing will take place in Room 400, City Hall. We need to show as much support as we can for this bill, and we are asking as many of you as possible to attend the hearing. Should you wish to testify at the hearing, you may do so, but what is most important is your presence. We need to pack the room, like we did four years ago, to make it clear to the Streets Committee that preserving Germany Hill is very important to us.
Councilman Jones stood with us to prevent the opening of Cinnaminson Street four years ago, and we must stand with him now in support of his efforts to strike the street permanently.
If there are any changes in the date or time, I will, of course, let you know. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
