  • Friends of Vernon Park Statement on the YWCA Building | Friends of Vernon Park
    Park are deeply troubled by the condition of the YWCA building on the park s northern edge For 8 years we have watched its disintegration with increasing concern The building has never been adequately secured and is a magnet for crime trash and ugliness We hope that it will not remain unsecured any longer no matter what its future holds Time is of the essence especially in this extremely ha rsh winter with potential major ice damage The community deserves a full report from city structural engineers and a clear process for proposals for the future development of the building Friends of Vernon Park are willing to work with others to ensure a positive outcome for everyone in the neighborhood February 24 2014 Share this Twitter Facebook Like this Like Loading Related This entry was posted in Around the Park Bookmark the permalink FEB 18 Information Session for Upcoming Greening Improvements in Vernon Park Join Us New date Groundbreaking in Vernon Park March 3 Join Us At Our Next Meeting May 9 Please join us Monday May 9 at the Center in the Park 5818 Germantown Avenue enter through W Rittenhouse St side and ring bell Support Friends of Vernon
