First Six Neighborhood Conversations Complete!

Throughout March and April, nearly 100 neighborhood residents joined SEAMAAC, the Cambodian Association of Greater Philadelphia, the Friends of Mifflin Square Park, the Garces Foundation, the Karen Community of Philadelphia, and many community members of the Neighborhoods Plan Steering Committee to discuss what was most important to them about the neighborhood and how we can work as a coalition of community groups to improve our neighborhood! These virtual conversations will shape the Draft Neighborhoods Plan set to be completed over the summer.

Between these meetings and the initial neighborhood survey, nearly 500 neighbors from across the community have come together to shape a vision for the neighborhood! Notes from these meetings will be shared on this website soon. Stay tuned to this website for future conversations to shape this Neighborhoods Plan!
