Announcing the Mifflin Square Park & Neighborhood Planning Process!

We are building a coalition to improve Mifflin Square Park and the neighborhood it serves, and will only succeed if enough people join the effort to make the changes we want to see. Over the next 18 months, we will seek out people who know and care about this place to shape our planning, provide and give feedback on ideas, and organize politically to push to make our ideas into reality. In early 2017, we will reach out to organize neighborhood discussions; please let us know if you’d like to attend or host a discussion.
