Our Projects

Clean & Safe North Broad

There is a visibly cleaner and safer North Broad. In the past year, North Broad has seen a 16% decrease in the overall litter, and improvements in the litter index. The North Broad Renaissance (NBR) continues to use a strategic approach to tackle and improve litter, which is why we are currently working on the “That’s Your Butt” cigarette butt litter campaign. To learn more, email info@northbroad.org.

Maintenance & Landscaping Projects

The NBR has 61 planters that it is responsible for maintaining, and we realize the opportunity we can have in creating more vibrant green space along the corridor while supporting economic development. As a result (and using the University City District’s model as a best practice) the organization has decided to launch the Broader Green program in North Philadelphia, that will train and hire residents from the North Broad community to help maintain the planters all with the goal of improving the overall economic vitality in one of Philadelphia’s poorest communities.

Marketing & Communications

Marketing and communications will help the North Broad Renaissance ensure that we provide two-way communications. Even the very best communicators understand that you can’t just talk to your stakeholders, you have to talk with them. We understand that our efforts will be way more successful if stakeholders have the opportunity and platform to share feedback on progress, initiatives and the impact we are having – both the good and not so good. In addition, we want you to enjoy the culture, commerce and communities that exist along this corridor.

Economic Development

In December 2018, the North Broad Renaissance (NBR), in partnership with Econsult Solutions, released the  State of North Broad report. Among other things, the report highlighted strategic placemaking efforts to incorporate employment districts along the corridor that build on current community assets and provide real economic opportunities for the entire North Broad community. They include a proposed Tech District, an Arts & Culture District, a Business District and a Health District. Contact us to inquire about moving or keeping your business on North Broad Street.

We’d like to thank our top sponsors for taking time to invest in the work we are doing to improve North Broad Street.
