Medians of MARKET, BROAD, WASHINGTON "BOULEVARD", COLUMBUS
(I like to call it Delaware River Boulevard, combined w Delaware Ave)
Develop a GREEN PLAN. With a timeline. A guide. Then start acquiring the funding. This may exist

Never take TOURISTS for granted!
development of the "Philadelphia Canopy"
'Construction should start in the next 5 years'

Seriously, they need a Marshall Plan level of just-get-it-done execution, they've been pondering the greenway since at least 2012.

Don't get me started on the Penn's landing cap. I always saw 2026 as the date but someone mentioned 2030 a day or two ago. LOL.

How could it possibly take 5 years just to start the project?...

Does the Washington Avenue project have trees planned?

It's OK guys I found the money: Philadelphia spent $775M less than it allocated in fiscal 2022. Here's what it plans to do with the money.

Quote:
With the extra spending dollars available, the city said it will put "a significant portion" of the funding to reserves as extra backing toward inflation and preparation for a what many see as an imminent economic downturn.

Philadelphia will also look to "make targeted but essential investments now across a number of areas including education, public safety, Parks and Rec and the Free Library, cultural institutions, infrastructure investment, and homeless services."
Idk if it's necessarily a good thing that a lot of the savings are from positions going unfilled, but higher than expected collections on BIRT and wage taxes is probably a good thing, and it can't hurt to bolster city finances.

Just reporting, the core is already above ground - we need a pictorial update for this one.

Really surprised this one doesn't have a tower crane yet. It'll be interesting to see how they manage when it gets taller.
