Our legal battle to "Save Irving Street" from private ownership has failed, however as private property owners with easement rights, we hope to keep Irving Street as it is today.


April 10, 2014:  The Commonwealth Court of Appeals upheld the lower court's decision which was to grant us our private easement rights, but also to allow the adjacent property owners to claim Irving Street as their private property.  According to the decision, Irving Street may not be blocked or in any way inhibited from use by easement holders.  At least that is good news for us.  Unfortunately, the public can be denied access.

(east Irving St. is on far side of the intersection of 200 block of S. Jessup Street)
