A new medical center could be coming to Roxborough.

According to a statement on the city's Zoning Board of Adjustment calendar, an applicant is seeking permission to open a group medical, dental and health practitioner center on Ridge Avenue.

The application, which is for 8016 Ridge Avenue near Summit Avenue, seeks to install the medial center on the first floor of a single family home. The permit also requests a single-family dwelling on the second floor.

The zoning board will review the application at its meeting at 4 p.m. on Wednesday.

Lets all give Nick a chance as he is just getting familar with the area and his new position. We have all started out with new jobs and have been in his shoes in that respect, so we know what it is like to just start out in a new job. He wll be a great Editor.

I agree. Let's give the guy a chance.

I understand that Nate is new, but we are talking about basic proofreading here. Nate is a journalist and proofreading is a big part of the gig. There is NO excuse for writing this sloppy in the age of spell/grammar check.

Everyone, Nate isn't new to patch. He's been running Mt. Airy patch for quite some time now. Check your facts before you defend someone who is just too lazy to proofread...

In case anyone is wondering how long...Nate has been a Patch editor since 2010. I didn't realize it takes more than a year to learn how to use a spell check.
