Mayoral Issue Agendas Seek PSCA Input
The 2014 election may soon be over, but the 2015 election is just gearing up and it will be an important one as Philadelphia will elect a new Mayor. Many organizations are putting together policy agendas that make recommendations to the next Mayor on a variety of topics. The Passyunk Square Civic Association sees these efforts as an important way to make sure our most pressing neighborhood issues are addressed by our local elected officials.
The Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce is running the Roadmap for Growth campaign, aimed at sparking a public conversation about the importance of creating jobs and growth in Philadelphia. PSCA recently participated in the Chamber’s South Philadelphia listening tour session at the Old Swedes Church in Queen Village, where participants were asked about their ideas to create jobs, support businesses and encourage growth. All residents are encouraged to attend other tour stops, Issue Forums or to contribute ideas and feedback online at roadmapforgrowth.com.
The Next Great City campaign is run by a coalition of 100 organizations representing community, environmental, health, faith, labor and other groups with the goal of creating clean, safer, and healthier neighborhoods. PSCA was a supporter of the 2007 and 2011 Next Great City agendas, which have helped focus efforts on replanting neighborhood trees, improving recycling, and creating a land bank among other successes. The coalition is now putting together a new agenda, and PSCA will share those efforts with our membership in the coming months.

Message from the Philadelphia Streets Department:

Due to the extreme low temperatures and recent weather events, Sanitation collections will be delayed throughout the week. Residents should set out their trash and recycling on their regularly scheduled day and keep them at their normal pick up locations. If they are not picked up we will collect the following day. We regret this inconvenience and thank citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation as crews navigate through dangerous cold weather.
