- Apparently among the first new bills of the session are two to deal with "nuisance" issues: neighborhood noise (barking dogs and incessant car alarms) may now be ticketable, and carry-out bars will see a bit more regulation.
- Meanwhile, another West Philly development plan (see the previous one here) appears to be riling the neighborhood and putting grey hairs on Councilwoman Blackwell's head: the PHA's Mill Creek project may involve condemning some currently occupied homes, and offers of first dibs on the new housing aren't reassuring those just finding out about the whole affair. Looks like time for another community meeting!
