Over the next nine months, the Office of Councilwoman Cherelle L. Parker, representing the 9th Council District and their consultant team, led by Philadelphia-based planning and design firm WRT, will be leading the 9th District Commercial Corridor + Neighborhood Plan. The study will create actionable strategies that build on the area’s strengths and create vibrant communities.
- Examine the District’s neighborhood commercial corridors,
- Develop recommendations for streetscape, façade, and signage improvements,
- Identify strategies and resources to reinforce the commercial activity and improve the economic viability of the area’s businesses, and
- Preserve public assets and invest in surrounding residential neighborhoods.
The planning process will include 3 public workshops, stakeholders interviews and an Advisory Committee. Ninth District staff are recruiting community members for the Advisory Committee who will be charged in bringing the voice of all stakeholders into the planning process, identifying opportunities, challenges, and priorities and developing recommendations.
