ABOUT UPPER NORTH

Logan, Olney, Fern Rock, East oak Lane, West Oak Lane, Cedarbrook, Ogontz and Belfield.

Upper North Philadelphia borders Cheltenham Avenue and the Broad & Olney transit hub is centrally located in the district. A key issue is planning for reuse of the Logan triangle, a 30-acre vacant site to the north of Roosevelt Boulevard.  Another site in need of a reuse strategy is the former Cardinal Dougherty High School in East Oak Lane. Other issues include preserving the historic quality of East Oak Lane and maintaining the urban character of commercial corridors on Broad Street, Ogontz Avenue, Easton Road, 5th Street and Old York Road.
