Planning Workshop for the Ivy Ridge Trail
Date: November 19, 2012
Time: 7 PM
Location: Manayunk Brew Pub, 4120 Main Street, Manayunk
Please join us for the first of three public workshops for the Ivy Ridge Trail. The proposed trail will begin at the end of the Manayunk Bridge at Dupont and High streets and follow the unused Ivy Ridge rail right of way on bridges across Leverington Avenue and the Fountain Street steps to the Ivy Ridge regional rail station.
Team members will make a brief presentation at 7:00 to outline the area of the proposed trail and to discuss opportunities and constraints. The bulk of the meeting will be focused on obtaining input from the public on their vision for the trail. Maps and aerial views of the area will be available for attendees to review. The planning process for this trail is just beginning, so it is critical for residents to participate, ensuring the trail planning and design process takes their opinions into account.
PARK(ing) Day Philly was Friday, September 18th. PARK(ing) Day is an annual national event where citizens reclaim parking spaces and re-imagine other possibilities that space could be used for. Check out this picasa album of spaces across Philly, including the space taken over by the Cynwyd Heritage Trail and Ivy Ridge Trail gang in front of La Colombe on Main Street. We got a lot of attention that day!
Thanks to Kevin Smith, Jane Green, Annie Scott, and Kay Sykora for the astroturf and plants. Great thanks to Cadence Cycling for loaning us a couple of the bikes! Also, thanks to Chris Leswing for printing some giant maps of the trail and trail connections. Until next year…
