He has been active in the landscaping design of the borough grounds and the new Veterans Square Memorial Garden, and the acquisition of the property to soon become a park at West 5th and Broomall Streets. He believes in planning for the future with enough flexibility to accommodate the accidents and opportunities that pop up whenever the planning is “done”.
