The Chamber and the PHL Neighborhood Growth Project (PHL NGP) are grateful to have worked with the Mayor in his first-term, and look forward to seeing what more can be accomplished in his second.
We are excited to work with the Governor and create an inclusive prosperity that reaches every neighborhood.
Next week, we will be bringing together healthcare, political, and neighborhood leaders to continue the conversation of not only how we create safer and healthier neighborhoods across Philadelphia, but the importance of why we need to.
