The city didn’t say no. It didn’t say yes, but it didn’t say no.

Here is the original story about the work of Mike Cirba (photo) and Friends of Cobbs Creek.

Cobb’s Creek Restoration Update: The Good, the Bad, the Realities. From the MyPhillyGolf.com archives: This story originally ran April 18, 2014. Since then, no decision has been reached about the fate of the restoration.

It has been almost a year and a half since Mike Cirba, the unofficial point man for a group calling itself Friends of Cobb’s Creek, went public with the dream of restoring the city-owned golf course in West Philadelphia to its original 1912 luster.

What has happened since then?

Nothing. Plenty. It depends on your perspective.
