UCHS Concerned About
Rising Rates of Demolitions
Rates of demolitions of historic properties have increased in Powelton Village, the adjoining community of Mantua, and in the rest of University City. Demolitions have ranged from small to significant. Currently, a few "threatened" structures still stand at 3705 Spring Garden and 3600 block of Lancaster. UCHS joins in support of our Powelton neighbors in their efforts to conserve threatened, historic properties. Read more in the new edition of ON THE WEST SIDE. >>
UCHS members are encouraged to learn more about a new campaign by the Preservation Alliance of Greater Philadelphia called " Places to Save", which features an interactive web-page where concerned residents can learn more about threatened properties and sign petitions in support of specific properties worth saving.
