Mario Lanza Park’s Trees Need YOU

Last week, two 200 year-old trees were removed from Mario Lanza Park.  One tree was dead, the other dying.

The photo above shows the enormity of one of the trees removed. 

Friends of Mario Lanza Park, a group of Queen Village volunteers have been working hard with arborists to have all of the parks’ trees inoculated and trimmed to keep them healthy.  QVNA salutes the hard work of these caring neighbors. Much work is yet to be done to save the remaining trees.  They need your help.

Please donate to the Mario Lanza Park Tree Fund.

Wed, Feb 14:  Proposed Changes to Waterfront Zoning @ 6:00pm

Major Proposed Changes to Waterfront Zoning will be discussed:

  • Do they impact Queen Village? Find out.
  • Please attend an important meeting of the Central Delaware Advisory Group

Councilman Mark Squilla will respond to concerns about proposed changes in the Central Delaware Zoning Overlay. The Overlay, adopted in 2013, implements the Master Plant for the waterfront, and proposed changes would remove all existing building height limits under certain circumstances.

Please attend to ask questions, express concerns, and hear directly from the Councilman and the Planning Commission.
