"@Stefan, have you tried calling 911 & reporting someone blocking your driveway?  They shouldn't be allowed to get away with that.  Someone blocked my driveway once & it was taken care of within 1/2 hour."

Recreation Park

Ok, I just took a deep breath before I wrote.  Just took my dog for a walk one of many, and what was at the end of Kenney and Park, a Port-a-Potty, not hidden in the trees, right where you cannot miss it. Come up Kenney Street to Park and the first thing you will see is a Potty. At least last year it was slightly hidden amongst the trees further in the Park.  I forgot, it is tan this year instead of bright blue.  My neighbor is trying to sell his house and how can you sell when there is a Potty…See More

Ethics in our community

"Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make a different choice."These are sage words leading into the Ridley High School Course Selection Guide for 2015-2016. But would it surprise you that there are no classes offered which directly teach how to make those choices?There are some truly amazing offerings in the curriculum, much better than anything I had in my youth, including a bioethics class, which I would have enjoyed very much.…See More

Posted by Michael on April 11, 2015 at 5:30pm 5 Comments

On April 10th, 2015 I was ticketed for speeding on Ridley Avenue. My wife says it's the first one in twelve years. On this I would like to make a point.



If you follow Ridley Avenue you will come to a bend where, if you continue going straight, it will turn into Cresswell Street. That is the street I have lived on for over 15 years. Before that my grandmother and grandfather lived here nearly their entire lives. I had a wonderful relationship with them and I have spent more days… Continue

INVEST 530,000 to SAVE 294 ?

Posted by tim devabey on March 31, 2015 at 2:08pm 0 Comments

Any good design, like any good planning decision for the real world, must include cost-benefit considerations. 

 

Several years ago the RP Shade Tree Commission submitted to RP Borough Council a plan to plant a double row of trees--an allee--from the foot bridge at Ridley Park Lake, across "the island," straight up the slope along the fence to Glenloch Road.  At the time, Council told the STC to hold off until after construction of the new pathway they had planned, and then…

Code enforcement public forum April 29, public invited

Posted by Nina on March 18, 2015 at 1:30pm 8 Comments

Councilor Glenn announced at March 17 council meeting that there will be a public forum on Code Permit Regulations and Ridley Park Code Enforcement. The date is April 29. The Borough's Code Enforcement Officer A. Tartagalia and some of his staff are to be there to answer residents questions.  

I hope we residents can get some questions answered about the terrible reputation Ridley Park is getting among area contractors about our code enforcement practices. 

Finally Spring is Coming!!!!

Posted by Jml on March 17, 2015 at 8:57am 1 Comment

I don't know about you, but I am really anxious to get into the garden.  So are the rabbits and squirrels.  

In the fall, I planted over 200 bulbs in a small area, (about a 6' oval).  Bulbs to bloom all thru the spring. Had to cover them with a mesh covering to keep the squirrels out.  They were digging them up almost as fast as I planted them.  (Even though I…
