Abington Wins Its 6th "Best Communities For Young People" Award!

by Diane Cardano-Casacio & Her Team

The America’s Promise Alliance, once again, named Abington as one of the nation’s “100 Best Communities for Young People” at a webcast just before 12:30 p.m. this afternoon.

This is the sixth time that Abington has won the award.

This year’s announcement was more subdued than last year’s.

See last coverage from last year’s event here.

There were no students in the board room in the administration building, rather several members of the school district’s administration were on hand to hear the announcement.

Abington School District spokesman Byron Goldstein, who submitted the community's long application, said the school district offered to Skype into the event, but the America’s Promise Alliance wanted to “spread it around.”

Also, this year’s announcement is one month earlier than last year’s, and Goldstein said it wouldn’t be fair to take the students out of class so early in the year. He did say the school district would likely hold an event down the road.

The five “promises” needed to be kept are:

  • Caring adults
  • Safe places
  • A healthy start
  • Effective education
  • Opportunities to help others

General Colin Powell, the founding chairman of America’s Promise, said in a taped webcast that prior to 2005, there wasn’t a formal recognition program for communities that were doing good. Powell said that 320 communities from each state were nominated; 18 communities were new winners … and 19 communities won the award for a sixth time.

Plans For New Wawa At Baeder & Old York Road In The Works

by Diane Cardano-Casacio & Her Team

That's right...a new Wawa may be coming our way, right across the street from our office! Check out the full article here:

Is Abington, or the world, ready for another Wawa?

Wawa, the ubiquitous retailer of coffee, hoagies and gasoline, is looking to build a store, replete with gasoline pumps, at the now-vacant parcel near the corner of Baeder, Old York and Hilltop roads.

The retailer is moving forward, as the applicant has met with the Montgomery County Planning Commission. And, according to a township memo, the Abington Planning Commission will hear the application Sept. 19, with a second meeting scheduled for Oct. 23 (if necessary).

The gas pumps

Tonight, the Abington Board of Commissioners will entertain a motion to advertise a special hearing on Oct. 25 to adopt an ordinance amending the township zoning ordinance. The amended ordinance would permit a motor vehicle fueling center use and the accompanying fueling center signs.

From the proposed ordinance:

“ … the Board of Commissioners has determined the need to amend the Zoning Ordinance to provide provisions relating to the regulation of uses which combine a motor vehicle fueling station with a retail/convenience market on the same premises, to more currently reflect the present commercial trends related to such uses …”

The proposed ordinance goes on to say that the site was previously occupied by “automotive related uses.” Also, the site is next to an Acura dealership.

To read the entire proposed ordinance, the pdf section above.

The Wawa near the corner of Old York Road and Rodman Avenue is less than 0.1 mile from the proposed store.

Cardano Real Estate Experts Pay Tribute to Fire Fighters at The Phillies Game: Remembering 9/11

by Diane Cardano-Casacio & Her Team

9/11 is a date that is etched into the minds of Americans everywhere.  Over the years we have vowed to remember the events and come together as one.  That is why at Cardano Real Estate Experts we chose to celebrate the lives of the fire fighters who risk their lives everyday to keep us safe.  The Abington township fire fighters have shown our community unconditional commitment.  They willingly sacrifice their time and energy for our safety. 

On August 29th, 2012 we hosted our 19th annual client appreciation event at a Philadelphia Phillies game in honor of our past clients and the Abington fire fighters.  Every year we host this event and give away the first pitch to one of our local heroes in the Abington community.  This year we wanted to honor Mike Jones, a local volunteer fire man who dedicates his life to the safety of the Abington community.  [Watch a re-cap of our event in the video below]    

 

Watch the video that was played on the big screen before Mike Jones threw the first pitch:
