New Mexican Restaurant Coming to Media. A work stoppage at Towne House? Gangster Vegan closes?

Pancheros is coming to the Media Shopping Center (next to new Starbucks).  You can check them out on Facebook.  No word yet on an opening date.

Speaking of an opening date, what's up with what seems like a work stoppage at the new Towne House Restaurant?  No work has been done in the last few weeks.

Gangster Vegan closed? Wow.

Lastly, looks like a nail salon is coming to the former site of Quincy's.

This week's Borough Council meeting

This week's Borough Council meeting:

At last night's meeting Borough Council discussed many issues. Keep Media Green spoke about their Green Walk in the public comments. Next, Borough Council candidate Michael Straw for Borough Council asked questions regarding the possibility of having a draft of a chicken ordinance prepared for the next CDC meeting. He also asked for an update for the Olive St. Parking Garage and he suggested the idea of making Media Borough a Bird Town. Council President Hall, stated that it was a great idea that Michael Straw brought up. Other residents brought forward issues concerning the 3rd Street Bridge/Dam project and Media Arts Council updates.
After public comment Mayor McMahon presented a proclamation making it Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Media. Finally, in Council business a few major topics were passed unanimously. Including, mass gathering permits for the Fire Company's Fundraiser (Oct. 5th) and Open Streets (Sept. 28th) and some zoning issues.

No sense in complaining, it's easier to just leave.

The new hotel coming to Upper Providence is picking up speed.  Today, the former site of Maggie's Hook, before that Generations and before that the Little Inn Restaurant; was torn down to make way for the new building.

I moved out of the state well over a year ago to a rural part on the Chesapeake Bay.  If you've read this blog for any length of time, it's obvious why I left.

Good luck.

Chicken Scratch(ed) - Media Chicken Ordinance postponed

In the latest of the news regarding Media Borough's possible chicken ordinance, it seems that there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Last Thursday Borough Council approved the drafting of a chicken ordinance by a 5-0 margin. Council President Hall said that discussion on the draft would begin in the next Community Development Committee (CDC) meeting. The next meeting was scheduled on Aug. 27th. However. Mr. Hall mentioned in the Council meeting that the CDC meeting may be cancelled and the chicken ordinance discussion wouldn't pick up until late September. 

Now on the Borough website it is confirmed the next CDC meeting has been cancelled. Why is this meeting being cancelled? Borough residents will now have to wait for another Borough Council meeting to be done for any update on what this ordinance will look like. Whether you support more regulation or less on chickens in the Borough it's clear that no one will see a hint of where this ordinance is going for another month.
