The Zoning Board hearing for proposed hotel at 4520 Penn Avenue on March 9 at 9:20AM.
The developer, Michael Kratsas of M.P. Kratsas, will be seeking variances to build a 4 story hotel. BDC has hosted two public meetings on Dec. 14 and Jan. 30 for the developer to present to residents. Based on feedback from the two public meetings, BDC denied support for the variance requests since the developer had not present enough information to the community.

UPDATE: The Zoning Board postponed their vote on the hotel development for 3 weeks so the developer can present design changes to the community. BDC is hosting a meeting between the community and the hotel developer Thursday, 3/23 at 6:30p at Irma Freeman Center (5006 Penn Avenue).
