Women’s Community Revitalization Project plans to build 35 affordable houses in East Germantown

Women’s Community Revitalization Project (WCRP) has proposed building 35 new affordable town homes on vacant woodsy land in East Germantown. 417 E Wister is located across from the Woodford Tennis Club. Though just a few blocks off of Germantown Avenue, this stretch of Wister is fairly desolate and a regular illegal dump site.

Women’s Community Revitalization Project is required to discuss the development at a public meeting with community members and the Registered Community Organizations (RCOs) with geographic boundaries that include the property. On Monday, December 8, 2014 (see the notice) the Wakefield 49ers Community Development and Improvement Association will host the RCO meeting in advance of the WCRP’s December 17 hearing before the Zoning Board of Adjustments.

If you’re interested in participating in the conversation about this development and the revitalization of East Germantown, please attend! 

Informational materials provided by WCRP are included below, along with Google map satellite imagery of the area.
