One more thing to know. Sandy Sorlien's talk - The Transect, The Smart-Code and the Neighborhood Conservation Code: Protecting Character and Guiding Growth in Traditional Towns. Narberth Borough Hall, Wednesday September 19th, 7:30 PM. Free.

Yes! Absolutely. Good catch, Deborah. Narberth is in the process of a borough-wide rezoning project, so this could well answer a lot of residents' questions about how and why it's happening.

Also, a correction: the Narberth festival is Sunday, not Saturday. Thanks for the catch, Ed Ridgway. Narberth folks are on the ball today, more so than I am, fortunately (or unfortunately)
