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!
Neighbors joined a meeting in Spanish, Khmer, English, and Nepali hosted by the Cambodian Association of Greater Philadelphia both virtually and in person to discuss the neighborhoods plan on April 16th.
Several neighborhood groups have already hosted neighborhood conversations! Dozens of residents have joined the Karen Community of Philadelphia, the Friends of Mifflin Square Park, the Garces Foundation, and SEAMAAC in discussions. There are still two more conversations scheduled: One on April 16th hosted by the Cambodian Association of Greater Philadelphia and one on April 20th hosted by SEAMAAC.
