|Proposed lot for a small park at the corner of 5th and Broomall Street|
Last Thursday a meeting was held at borough hall to discuss the matter and what was mentioned as an "unusual" opportunity Media has with putting a park at this location. It's still not clear what's meant by "unusual" but if it involves money/taxes, that will need to be explained and fully disclosed. I'm not the only one looking for clarity on this potential deal, as lawyers and developers have called me asking for the same thing. I'm not sure what the dealings are, but there are few people who would like to have a shot at this property and I'm pretty sure they'll outbid Media Borough.
Just as important, residents have been active with stating their positions as well on issues regarding financing, size, property values, fairness, parking, development and what if any nuisance a park like this may add to the street. This has a long way yet to go, but who we haven't heard from yet are the 6 candidates running for Media Borough Council. Where do they stand on this issue and when will they release their positions to be discussed?
Here are the candidates the community would like to hear from. We are happy to post their statements on the matter.
Endorsed Media Democrats:
|Amy Johnson, Lisa Johnson|
