The following letter was sent by the PHL Neighborhood Growth Project to neighborhood, business, and civic leaders.

More transparency and accountability in city government will ease the process of starting new businesses and allow residents to more easily voice their concerns and needs.

Over the last year, the PHL Neighborhood Growth Project has been working to improve the opportunities we need to create strong lines of communication between local government, the business community, and neighborhood leaders to create lasting impact and prosperity in every neighborhood.

Join the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, at Transparency in Local Government: Putting People First at City Hall for an honest dialogue about how our local government can further prioritize transparency and accountability.

When we all come together to ensure our local government is listening to the needs and concerns of our neighborhoods, we will create a shared prosperity for all Philadelphians.

Thank you,

Yvette Núñez is the Vice President of Civic Affairs at the Chamber of Commerce of Greater Philadelphia and a coalition member of PHL Neighborhood Growth Project.
