Philadelphia City Hall
In the fine print of Mayor Nutter’s proposed budget is an idea whose time has belatedly come to Philadelphia City Hall: having workers do preventative maintenance on police and fire stations.
Philadelphia property owners, residential and commercial, brace yourself: Mayor Nutter is unveiling a new budget while laying out a plan that will mean higher property taxes for many.
City Council has Thursday off because of last Monday’s holiday, but that practice may soon end if new president Darrel Clarke has his way.
While she’s getting settled in as the new City Commissioners Chairwoman at Philadelphia City Hall, Stephanie Singer continues to unearth items from the past.
Two months after “Occupy Philadelphia” protesters were evicted from Dilworth Plaza, on the west side of City Hall, city officials gathered for the long-awaited groundbreaking of the plaza’s renovation.
With four words, “It is now law,” Mayor Nutter signed into law the city’s new zoning code, replacing one that dated back fifty years and was chock full of anachronisms and confusion.
“This project celebrates the pageantry and spectacle that is Mummery. It is a celebration of art and artifacts inspired by the city’s great folk art tradition and this parade,” – Mayor Michael Nutter.
The soon-to-be City Council President, Darrell Clarke, has proclaimed part of his agenda for the new year: bringing in big bucks by slapping advertisements on city-owned buildings, including rec centers and City Hall.
Here’s a gift you can give yourself for the holidays: quit smoking. And Philadelphia residents can get a free push in the right direction.
The Nutter administration has developed a plan to help pedestrians get around Dilworth Plaza safely while construction workers spend the next 27 months renovating the area.
Even though the signs read “Sidewalk Closed,” some pedestrians used to cutting through the plaza are choosing to walk in the street along the southwest corner.
Plans for an upscale billiards parlor in center city Philadelphia are very much in limbo, and City Council now is giving the developer a firm deadline to get the project going.
The $50-million project has begun, and officials say it will completely transform the plaza above and below ground.
This morning, Capt. William Fisher of the Philadelphia Police Department’s civil affairs unit went tent-to-tent in a small section of the Occupy Philadelphia encampment, telling people they need to stay out of their tents until at least 4pm.
The protesters said they had begun to move on Thursday night because they expected eviction, but Mayor Nutter doesn’t understand why they thought that.
