Dear Lansdowne neighbors,
April Showers have brought us spring flowers. Along with the flowers blossoms and bird songs, Lansdowne Borough has many reasons to celebrate.
First, I would like to thank Mayor Byrne, Vice President Naji-Taylor and fellow Councilmembers, past and present, and former Mayor Tony Campuzano who joined with State Senators Kearney and Williams, County Vice Chair Elaine Schaefer, and our illustrious Congressperson Mary Gay Scanlon in celebrating the opening of Gateway Slope on April 8th. The opening also served as a Dedication ceremony to past Councilmember and President Marty Council. Also, I want to thank Marty’s family for attending the Ceremony. Katie Dunnington cut the ribbon to open the ceremony and reminisced about the time and effort both Katie and Marty brought into Lansdowne.
Thank you to DJ Joe Foley, Ryan Berley of Franklin fountain, and Bonnie McShane of Bonnie’s Wondergardens for making the day great with flowers, ice cream, and music.

We will also celebrate in the coming weeks with a groundbreaking ceremony for the Tot Lot being installed at McKinley Avenue. Currently, I have proposed tentative dates to Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon’s office and am waiting to hear back to plan the event. This continued development demonstrates our commitment to investments in our neighborhoods and our Parks.
