The group is taking a look at a property for sale at 1201 Fanshawe St. The asking price for the home, legalized for a duplex, is $339,000, but it’s being marketed as a triplex.

The organization, which is pitching a plan to require stickers placed outside rental properties, held a Zoom meeting with a staffer for City Councilwoman Cherelle Parker.

State Rep. Jared Solomon told the crowd there are about 20 new Afghanistan refugee families in Philadelphia.

Solomon said $32 million is being invested in commercial properties near Bustleton Avenue, from Cottman Avenue to Bleigh Avenue. New businesses will include Giant, Starbucks and a state liquor store.

Solomon said a bench, lighting and greenery are coming to the small property at Cranford, Loretto and Magee avenues, now mostly an overgrown dumping ground.

Meanwhile, Solomon will host a senior fair on Saturday, Sept. 25, from 9 a.m. to noon at St. William hall, Argyle and Robbins streets. There will be light refreshments, free flu, COVID-19 and tetanus shots, safe disposal of unused and expired medicine and blood pressure screenings.

State Sen. Tina Tartaglione will hold an e-waste and shredding event on Saturday, Sept. 25, from 9 a.m. to noon at Wissinoming Park, 5773 Frankford Ave. (entrance on Cheltenham Avenue).

Tartaglione will hold three senior expos on upcoming Thursdays, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.: Oct. 7 at St. Anne PAL Center, 2328 E. Lehigh Ave.; Oct. 21 at Mayfair Community Center, 2990 St. Vincent St.; and Oct. 28 at Lawncrest Recreation Center, 6000 Rising Sun Ave. ••
