Philadelphia Treasurer Nancy Winkler, whose daughter was among six people killed when a wall collapsed in June atop a Center City Salvation Army thrift store, has started an online petition to create a memorial park at the site.
The petition, on Change.org, asks her boss, Mayor Nutter, as well as City Council President Darrell L. Clarke and the Salvation Army to finance a park at 22d and Market Streets. By noon Friday, it had more than 1,500 signatures.
Winkler's 24-year-old daughter, Anne Bryan, was shopping June 5 when an unsupported wall at an adjacent demolition site crashed on top of the store. A number of investigations into the collapse are continuing, including a special grand jury called by District Attorney Seth Williams.
