Earlier this month, I published an article that displayed several structural safety concerns of the Radio Lofts building, located at the corner of 2nd and Cooper Streets in Camden. Thanks to my readers and Facebook friends, professors, and fellow urbanists, the article went viral locally, and the City of Camden told Philly.com’s journalist Kevin Riordan that an inspection would take place.
Today I took a step to ensure that an inspection has taken place, or, that it will take place in the future. I filed a Municipal Records Request Form with the Office of the Municipal Clerk in Camden. I have to wait 7-10 business days for an answer, but either way, the citizens of Camden and those who will begin using Cooper Street as a regular means of transportation next week are 7-10 days closer to knowing what exactly is going on with the Radio Lofts building.
