At 108 Titan Street in the Pennsport section of Philadelphia sits a slab of concrete surrounded by metal guardrails. This has been a site for sore eyes for more than a year. Early construction plans included talk of making this plot into homes. Good news… green is on the way! The Community Design Collaborative recently received a grant for the redesign project of Titan Park over the next 6 months. Volunteers and community members are urged to help participate in speeding this process along. Volunteers will have the chance to meet with the Community Design Collaborative two times to discuss design ideas and plans. We look forward to following this project and finally seeing some green grass.. maybe?!
