The Central Delaware Advocacy Group unveiled its new website at Thursday’s meeting.
Communications committee chairwoman Rene Goodwin told the group that the new site (www.centraldelawareadvocacy.org), which was designed with the help of Penn Praxis, will better position CDAG in its outreach efforts.
Joan Reilly of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society updated CDAG on her organization’s efforts in turning Columbia Avenue near Penn Treaty Park into a connector street to the waterfront. The project is being funded by a grant from the William Penn Foundation and Fairmount Park and will include tree planting along the street.
In other news, CDAG voted to adopt rules to encourage attendance from member organization representatives. Organizations that fail to send delegates to four consecutive meetings will lose their voting privileges. They will be able to regain them by sending delegates to three consecutive meetings.
