Video; Public Testimony & Wrap-up From Philadelphia Public Hearing March 8, 2011
After being looked over as a spot for a DRBC public hearing, Philadelphia held one of it’s own back on March 8, 2011. Close to 60 citizens gave powerful and at times emotional testimony. It was standing room only and host Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown opened up the balconies as well as invited people to sit along the inside of the chamber.
Overwhelmingly the citizens in attendance called for more public comment time, an extended moratorium in the Delaware Watershed, and revised and strengthened regulations from the DRBC based on cumulative impact studies yet to be completed.
Media Mobilizing Project documented the individual testimonies during the evening.
