Logan Community Discussion of Solar Farm

Logan community group to discuss solar farm

The Logan Neighborhood Advisory Committee will host a meeting on Tuesday, January 25th at Holy Trinity Presbyterian Church, 1100 W. Rockland Street in Philadelphia. The meeting, which will be held from 7-9pm, will provide residents with information regarding solar and other green technologies and the role they could play in developing the Logan Triangle.

The Logan Triangle, a 35-acre parcel of land located between Loudon and Wingohocking streets and 11th and 6th streets, is now in its 25th year of development limbo. Studies have been conducted over the years, which have suggested various uses for the site. A recent study, conducted by graduate students of the University of Pennsylvania’s City and Regional Planning program, recommended a solar panel energy farm and other green options as possible interim uses until larger future development.

Speaking at the event is Katherine Gajewski, director of sustainability for the City of Philadelphia and Kristin Sullivan, project director with Solar America Cities, who will provide a general overview of relevant sustainability initiatives and solar energy technology.
