Cobb's Creek update?
« on: November 19, 2022, 10:00:28 AM »



It would appear the Cobb's Creek closed in October 2020 for a renovation/redesign. 


What progress has been made since?

The Foundation will now seek building permits from the city, according to a spokesperson. The driving range and education center will be built after the creek restoration and wetland creation project.

I believe the range and education center will precede or be done in tandem with the Creek restoration but otherwise here's the latest reporting.   Much more about the Foundation's Mission, vision, and gear and contributions to help fund the project can be found at www.cobbscreek.org

It seems that the educational commitment along with the water management efforts are aiding the effort to build goodwill in the city government.

Mayday,


I suspect that's a good read, and it's going to be an incredible asset in all respects for Philadelphia and surrounds.
