So there you are, a guest at the entrance to a rather fetching estate just outside the city. You are forgiven if you indulge in a moment of imagined royalty, a fleeting second of fantasied wealth, as you motor down the front drive past charming Tudor-style cottages, two greenhouses, a lush grassy field, tall cedars, stately oaks and weeping hemlocks, until you reach a magnificent home reminiscent of Sutton Place on the River Wey near Guildford in...

About four months after the opening of a 900-car county garage in Doylestown, borough officials this week considered building another garage with about 200 parking spaces. Council members said the second garage, which would be part of a retail complex and closer to existing stores, could better help in their planned revitalization of the borough's central business district. They took the first step Monday by voting 7-0 to have a Philadelphia architectural and engineering firm do a feasibility study of the project.

It would cost more than $22 million to build a new Strath Haven High School, or $18.5 million to renovate the current one to meet the needs of the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District now and in the future. Those were the preliminary results from a feasibility study commissioned three months ago by the school board and presented at Monday's board meeting. The study evaluated the high school and other buildings in the district and considered options. Among the most immediate changes needed are those required by the federal Americans With Disabilities Act to make the building accessible.

Nearly 20 years after casinos arrived in Atlantic City, it appears as though the resort town is about to get something nongamblers can enjoy: a hockey rink. Comcast-Spectacor, in a joint venture with Scarborough Properties, has undertaken a feasibility study to build an ice-skating facility for public use adjacent to the Sandcastle Baseball Stadium in Atlantic City. The firms will have 60 days to complete their study and form an agreement to develop and operate the facility. Scarborough is a commercial real-estate developer based in Gibbsboro.

Remember the civic center? When it was announced almost a year ago, Camden County officials planned to build a 6,000- to 10,000-seat facility in Lawnside at a cost of about $53 million. Enraged Lawnside residents forced county officials to drop plans to build the center there. Talk of building it in Gloucester Township provoked another storm of local protests. Freeholder Director Jeffrey Nash admitted that the civic center has not been one of the county government's finest moments.

A grassroots effort for a new, state-of-the-art pool in this township is slowly picking up some speed. A citizen-funded feasibility study, expected to be done in September, will outline what kind of facility would work best in the township and where it could be located, Mike Chain, one of the organizers, said yesterday. "The details for the project are still up in the air right now, but one thing is for sure: The aquatic facilities we have now in Upper Dublin are undersized for the demand," Chain said.

A new, multipurpose YMCA in Washington Township may still be years away, but YMCA officials say the plan cleared its first major obstacle. Mark Parker, general director of the Gloucester County YMCA, said the Y's executive committee agreed late last month to "proceed cautiously" toward building a multimillion-dollar facility in Washington Township. Under the plan, the township would donate 14 acres abutting Washington Lake Park to the Y, which would build the facility on that property.

Rowan University has received a $25,800 state grant to determine whether the region can sustain and benefit from a technology-business incubator, a program that helps launch start-up businesses.

NEW YORK - The deal announced here Thursday was the one nobody expected - an attempt to restore the aged, rusting SS United States to a glamorous ocean liner and sail it across the world. The luxury operator Crystal Cruises has signed an option agreement with the ship's owner, the SS United States Conservancy, that its chief executive said could see the iconic vessel ferrying passengers to faraway ports as early as 2018, thus ending the liner's two-decade docking in South Philadelphia.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry will receive a $250,000 federal grant to conduct a cost-benefit analysis for different paid family-leave models. The grant, awarded Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Labor's Women's Bureau, is part of $3 million in research grants distributed to 17 states and municipalities to analyze how paid-leave programs can be developed and implemented. As part of its work, the Pennsylvania's labor department will conduct a feasibility study of a state administrative infrastructure to support a paid family leave program.

The SS United States won't sail again. Earlier this year, a luxury cruise operator and the nonprofit that owns the long-retired ocean liner docked in South Philadelphia announced an effort to return the aged ship to its former life as a glamorous ocean liner. But after a feasibility study, Crystal Cruises and the SS United States Conservancy have determined that refurbishing the ship to sail would be too challenging, the groups announced Friday. "Unfortunately, the hurdles that would face us when trying to bring a 65-year-old vessel up to modern safety, design, and international regulatory compliance have proven just too great to clear in both a technically and commercially responsible manner," Crystal president and CEO Edie Rodriguez said in a statement.

If you are a business owner in Philadelphia who owes taxes, consider paying up now. Mayor Kenney said Wednesday that the city was weighing selling business-tax debts to third-party collectors as a way to collect millions owed in Business Income and Receipt Taxes (BIRT). City officials are looking at the legality of such a sale and will also conduct a feasibility study to determine the amount such a sale could generate, Kenney said. "A tax-debt sale could be a vital tool for the city to bring in delinquent tax dollars," Kenney said.

ISSUE | SS UNITED STATES Restore ship's sparkle in Philadelphia The SS United States Conservancy has tentatively sold the venerable ocean liner to a cruise company that, pending a feasibility study, could take it to another port for refurbishing ("Liner faces a long voyage," Monday). Philadelphia's waterfront has been its home for 20 years, and Philadelphians have poured more than $10 million into preserving it to date. Why isn't Philadelphia being considered as the site of its rebirth?

Drexel University's entrepreneurial president has set his sights on the possibility of building over and developing part of the Schuylkill Rail Yards, long ogled by visionaries for its expansive prospects yet largely untouched because of the potential infrastructure problems it poses. President John A. Fry is embarking on a university-funded million-dollar-plus feasibility study with Amtrak and SEPTA to determine options. Could 30th Street Station and its West Philadelphia community be connected to the Art Museum and Center City via an elevated platform built atop the rail yards?

When the governor of New Jersey visits a small town, it's a big deal. When he is also a signatory to the U.S. Constitution, it's historic. The Cherry Hill actor Christian Johnson's portrayal of the Garden State's first chief executive, William Livingston, charmed an audience Saturday at the Indian King Tavern Museum in Haddonfield. The performer, 74, and the governor (who lived from 1723 to 1790) were on familiar turf. Johnson is a longtime booster of the Indian King, and Livingston worked and took refuge there during the British occupation of Trenton.
