OUR PURPOSENorth Broad Renaissance
The North Broad Renaissance is a non-profit that will serve as a Special Service District (SSD) whose primary role is to provide communication and information to city administrators and Council, neighborhood and community groups and others who are (or may) do business or development or other activities on North Broad, from City Hall to Germantown Avenue. In partnership with community stakeholders, we are looking to revitalize the community, create opportunity, and improve the economic power and overall quality of life along one of Philadelphia’s most prominent corridors – North Broad Street. Top priorities include:
- Clean and safe corridors
- Maintenance and landscaping
- Marketing and communications
- Street lighting
OUR IMPACTNorth Broad Renaissance
The ultimate goal for the North Broad Street corridor is community revitalization.
According to research, if they work well, neighborhood commercial corridors make an important contribution to community quality-of-life, especially in pedestrian and transit-dependent lower-income neighborhoods. As North Broad Street becomes a key area of development and revitalization, it’s critical that, collectively, we serve as partners where current and future stakeholders benefit from this revitalization. It’s no secret that this process can be challenging and can have its share of successes and failures, but we look forward to working with the community as we hold each other accountable for accomplishing this goal.
