NBW Needs Supporters to Help Win Zoning Variance

NBW kids at the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby

Neighborhood Bike Works is appealing a recent denial of certification of occupancy it received from the Department of Licenses and Inspections (L&I).  There are three ways supporters of NBW can help.

1. Friends, especially those who live in the vicinity of St. Mary's Church, can write a letter of support about the Church housing the NBW youth program and bicycle workshop in the basement of 3916 Locust walk and ask for a variance so that NBW can continue its operations there.  Folks who live in the 19104 zip code are especially encouraged to write a letter.  Send your letter to NBW.

2. Sign a petition asking for a variance and email the petition directly to NBW.

3. Attend the Zoning Board of Adjustment hearing where St. Mary's Church is appealing L&I's notice on Tuesday, September 7, 2010 at 9:30 am at 1515 Arch Street, 18th Floor, ZBA Hearing Room 18002.
