Proposed Address: 3514 Ryan Ave.
Philadelphia, PA 19136
To Whom It May Concern:
Please accept this letter as an official opposition letter to the above business on behalf of the Mayfair Business Association (“MBA”) and Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”). We have attempted to reach out to the owner of this business on numerous occasions, to no avail. Many neighbors have come forward in opposition to this business for a myriad of reasons:
- Increased traffic on a one way street
- Type of business is undesirable on a residential block
- Already an abundance of commercial traffic on such block
- Confusion as to the directional designation of the block will only increase with this added business
- No contact from the proprietors of such business
We met on the evening of November 4, 2009 at the John Perzel Community Center. Attendees included the MBA, the MCA, the Mayfair CDC, several business owners as well as several neighbors from the surrounding blocks representing the 3300, 3400 and 3500 Blocks of Ryan Ave and the 3400 Block of Cottman. This neighborhood also has a significant amount of this type of business in a one mile radius of such proposed location. Therefore, due to the reasons mentioned above, the MCA and MBA are opposed to this business. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
