The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments and recommendations from the public concerning the proposed Cobbs Creek Mitigation Bank. The site is located on property owned by the City of Philadelphia and currently occupied by the Cobbs Creek and Karakung golf courses. Upon securing necessary site protection agreement with multiple utility easement holders and the City of Philadelphia, First Pennsylvania Resource would create a stable stream and riparian system and improve habitat for a variety of species. In addition to reestablishing appropriate riparian buffer zones along streams, the restoration activities will buffer and capture storm water runoff preventing nutrients and sediments from discharging directly into the watershed and downstream waterways in accordance with the mitigation design plan.
