Say a prayer for Ardmore this Christmas, because based on what I am reading on this blog by other bloggers as well as what actually makes it to the papers and other media outlets, Ardmore is quite simply doomed. A veritable municipal Titanic

Too much development headed this way far too fast, and I hope Liz Rogan is happy with her legacy (which is merely a continuation of Reed and Taylor agendas of yore)

Between whatever is going to happen with the Ardmore YMCA site, whatever is going to happen on the Ruby's Lot in Surburban Square, the cram plan for Sibley Avenue, the Dranoff Drama on the other side of the tracks, Cricket Avenue, etc, Ardmore is going to be so crammed with apartments no one is going to be able to move, breathe, or drive their car anyplace quickly.

If this is true, it will mean another 30+ new apartments across from Surburban Square, at the corner of St. George's Road and Montgomery Avenue.  We are also projected to get 47 new apartments at 112 Sibley Avenue.  This should have a noticeable impact on the area.

Don't let this guy set up your Christmas lights

I got this from the township earlier today.  It's a good read:

While decorating homes and businesses is a long-standing tradition around the holiday season, the Lower Merion Fire Department and the U.S. Fire Administration are reminding residents that, unfortunately, these same decorations may increase your chances of fire.

Following a few simple fire safety tips can keep electric lights, candles and Christmas trees from creating a tragedy.

· Don't put your live Christmas tree up too early, or leave it up for longer than two weeks.

· Place trees away from heat sources, including fireplaces or heat vents. The heat will dry out the tree, causing it to be more easily ignited by heat, flame or sparks.

· Keep the live tree stand filled with water at all times.

· Use only nonflammable decorations.

· Don't link more than three light strands, unless the directions indicate it is safe to do so. Connect strings of lights to an extension cord before plugging the cord into the outlet.

· Avoid using lit candles; consider using battery-operated flameless candles, which can look, smell and feel like real candles.

· Ensure that Christmas trees and other holiday decorations don't block an exit way.

For more tips on how to prevent a holiday fire and what to do in case a fire starts in your home, visit the U.S. Fire Administration's website at www.usfa.fema.gov.

What is Going on In Ardmore? Other Than Lower Merion Can't Get Out of Their Own Way?

My sources tell me that North Ardmore Civic is dealing with some weighty issues? What is going on in Ardmore?

What is going on with the cram plan for Sibley Ave?

What is going on with the Dranoff Plan and is something like that seriously going forward when Ardmore isn't even getting a new train station? Still don't get how Lower Merion is giving away land do you?

And why is it that Paoli can get a shovel in the ground, Malvern can complete a station do-over complete with updated parking and handicap accessible ramps, Wayne can do the same and yet in Ardmore nada?

And what is the HUGE rumor of Suburban Square supersizing again? Is Lower Merion really going to roll over and allow development on the Ruby's lot? Please tell me this is just a rumor?
