Join the petition on Change.org

Please join the petition on Change.org to have the Philadelphia Fire Dept and L&I stop the proposed development at 303 S. 51st Street.

Developers Callahan Ward have dismissed the safety concerns of the community. They’ve denied us access to their environmental testing results and they’ve refused to make any concessions to mitigate the negative consequences this project will have on the neighbors. This makes us dependent on the city to protect us, however, despite wide-spread community requests for their action and numerous email/phone calls campaigns and meetings with Fire and L&I, no action has been taken.

Which begs the question, why doesn’t fire safety and environmental health precautions apply to our working class and predominantly black neighborhood?
