Information regarding the history of the muslim community in Germantown at Germantown City Hall
Notes on the whiteboard from today’s “What’s Next?” meeting at Germantown City Hall.
I think its important that we hold the community (and each other) to a higher standard. The drugs & senseless violence needs to stop - how can we work on this?
Also the Pennsylvania School for the Deaf is in Germantown but its overlooked by the community. Making Germantown more deaf-friendly & building a relationship would be good!!
A Town Hall.
Given the access issues, apartments might be the best use - Germantown already has plenty of churches and other spots for neighborhood meetings.
-> A large visual history projection
-> Bring back the kitchen garden.
-> SLOW FOOD
We need restaurants/gathering places! Places of interaction
The Gardens of Germantown brought me here, the Wissahickon Park brought me here. Rittenhousetown & its history in regards to Germantown & its farms. FLAX grew here.
Modern times brought fast food & trash. Chelten Ave a very poor representaion of Germantown. Chelten Commerical Corridor aesthetically degrading. Contrasts the beuaty - more walkable - invitations to eat/meet festival/close streets off to traffic.
Turn this place in an art center!
