Look for more to be installed, step by step, in part due to some financial assistance, says Mancinelli:
And there will be more on the way thanks to a recent $500K grant (they fabricated the park with $275K in capital resources) offered by the William Penn Foundation. According to UCD’s director of planning and economic development Prema Gupta, the vision for UCD is to create a park in phases . . .
It’s possible a permanent retail space, maybe with a rotating cast of retailers, might manifest in the future, or a landscaped buffer wall between Market Street and The Porch, or a public art installation. UCD is exploring many options at this time. Before anything is decided, however, they’ll have to determine what land-use is acceptable at the location.
Wi-Fi and a food kiosk have also been among the requested additions. Gupta told Mancinelli that "the era of being able to create a park ... in one fell swoop is over."
