Attached is a conceptual design for a redevelopment proposal for the downtown Business District of Ridley Park. This plan was presented to R.P. Borough council as a template for redevelopment by Sora Northeast, a Master Redeveloper from Sewell, NJ. Borough…Continue
Tonight's council meeting turned into a comical charade of "nay sayers" trying to create an atmosphere of fear and misinformation in regards to the proposed revitalization in the business district by Sora , a real estate Investment firm.
After several past public meetings with SORA, the next logical step was to have the Business Owners meet with SORA to answer questions and concerns. This took place in Borough Hall on Thursday Feb 16. The owners wanted a meeting where they…Continue
We've been receiving numerous complaints from residents on Hillside Road and Burk Avenue regarding Verizon's installation of Fios to these neighborhoods. Any rightfully so.
Seems that Verizon has filed the necessary requests with the Borough of Ridley Park to "open the street" for installation of Fios. Whenever a utility company wants to get access to the "right of way" along the streets to install their lines or equipment, they must advise and request permission from the…Continue

At a Public Meeting of the Shade Tree Commission (STC), Chairman John Hosbach asked me if I had "bashed the Shade Tree Commission on Ridley Park Online (RPOL)." John had been prompted by another member of the Commission to ask me that question because that is how he/she interprets some comments I posted on RPOL.
Since I was challenged in a Public Forum, I will respond in this Public Forum. I will also reply directly to Chairman…Continue

Jared's description about Borough Manager and the strong political influences of the Party leader and State rep. also apply to the School Boards in Del. County, including Ridley School District. How do you think that district administrators and teachers get hired, despite "sealed" files from previous employment by other school districts ?
The voting public need to demand transparency AND integrity from borough, school district, county, state, and national representatives - all…
A Borough Manager's job description is broad and expansive.

Been in Tasmania the last few days seeing some of the interesting sights they have here. Went to Cradle Mountain for the day, got to see the amazing Tasmanian devil. Quite small little animal, got to watch some younger ones being fed. Very entertaining to see which one is the strongest & meanest one.

What's happening between the Acme Shopping Center and the train tracks? There is usually much discussion after something is completed. Wouldn't it be nice to know ahead of time.

In a surprising move (to me, anyway) the man who shot Officer Marc Hanly was found not guilty of every charge except "recklessly endangering a civilian".
Whoever owns the billboard that's right next to the Ron Wise Auto Body place just put up a new billboard, higher than the old one had been and also appears to be LED-lit. And it faces Ridley Park. I and my neighbors will see this one all the time; it's also higher than the trees. I see it now so when it's lit I'll probably be able to read it.
Tragedy occurred this morning on the northbound tracks at the Ridley Park train station. Witnesses accounts say just before 11AM an unidentified female hurried down the stairs of the train station as a north bound Amtrak train approached Ridley Park station. As the train approached the woman crossed…Continue
