City plans "listening tour"

City's planning commission will hold three meetings at three locations

City plans "listening tour"



Alan Greenberger may be deputy mayor of the city of Philadelphia, but he'll be like everyone else and get only a limited time to testify before the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board at its public input hearings in April. As a city official, he'll get 15 minutes.

And so, to make the most of his time, Greenberger and his staff at the Philadelphia City Planning Commission are going on a "listening tour," with three stops at three locations in the weeks ahead. He said in an interview that he wants to hear what's on people's minds before testifying to gaming commissioners.

PCPC is working on the details and will announce soon the time and locations, but all will take place before the gaming board's sessions on April 11 and 12 at the Convention Center and May 8 at Lincoln Financial Field.

Greenberger said the commission will most likely hold meetings in South Philadelphia, Center City and one of the Central Delaware waterfront communities.
