Improvement plan for Eastern North Philadelphia


This isn't your everyday neighborhood improvement project where the streets get cleaned and block captains are assigned.

This plan is different.

Here's what the Asociacion de Puertorriquenos en Marcha wants to accomplish:
  • Drastically reduce crime
  • Boost residents' income and wealth
  • Improve neighborhood businesses
  • Increase the number of local, community leaders
  • Foster environmental health
  • Support art and cultural events
That's a pretty heavy laundry list, but there 200 residents and 50 organizations backing their plan up. If you would like more details, they can be found here.
