Bicycle CoalitionThe Delaware River Waterfront Corporation is going before the Zoning Board of Adjustment on Wednesday, April 18th to oppose a variance application submitted by Tower Development to build a Super Wawa Gas Station at Tasker and Columbus Boulevard.

DRWC wrote a very compelling op-ed last week making the case that gas stations were specifically prohibited from the zoning overlay adopted in 2013 and this exception should not be made.

If you agree with DRWC and want to lend them your voice, please submit a short online note about why you think this proposal should not be allowed on the Delaware River waterfront and negatively impact the Circuit.

They will deliver all letters to the ZBA on Wednesday at the hearing.

Please take a few minutes to submit your comments and speak up for walkable, bikeable waterfront and safe access to the Circuit Trails.

Sarah’s foray into trail and bicycle advocacy began in 2004 when she became involved in the “Free Schuylkill River Park” campaign to preserve public access to the Schuylkill River Trail in Center City, now known as Schuylkill Banks. Since joining the Bicycle Coalition in 2006, she has been a key player in the Bicycle Coalition’s key accomplishments: the $23 million TIGER trail-building grant; naming and building out the Circuit; lobbying successfully for legislation mandating the inclusion of bike parking in new construction projects; Philadelphia’s Complete Streets policy; and coordinating research and analysis of several reports on bicycling in Philadelphia.
