Neighborhood Placemaker Grant Application

WICA Members have been working on a grant application for funds from the Philadelphia Horticultural Society (PHS). Two possible projects were submitted and one was selected as a finalist for the grant. The finalist is for a project to clean up the hillside at the bottom of Ridge between Deke’s BBQ and the Bridge/Bike Race Mural.

Update: Daisy Field

Members have been working with the Parks and Recreation Department, Wissahickon AA, and Impact Softball to work out a solution to field usage at Daisy Field. Volunteers from these organizations provide their own time and funds to maintain these fields and keep players safe.

Members of the 5th District attended our last meeting with some updates. Officer Klein, who has been our neighborhood liaison for many years will be retiring within the next few months. We wish Officer Klein the best as he departs. We welcome Officer Christopher Jones as he takes on the role of our liaison.
