Have you seen our new “Welcome to Passyunk Square” signs? We have installed 30 “Welcome to Passyunk Square” aluminum signs on key blocks throughout the neighborhood. Many thanks to board member Karin Morris for all her hard work on this project!

PSCA initiated the project based on the results of a neighborhood survey that found support for signage that provides an overall image for the neighborhood.

The signs will also serve to let residents know about the local civic association and its website: as well as mark the edges and entry points into the neighborhood.

Working with Councilman Mark Squilla’s office and the Streets Department, PSCA came up with a plan to replace many of the outdated “No Parking due to Street Cleaning” signs with the new Welcome signage. PSCA has fully funded the signage project through fundraising efforts.

“The signs give a face to the neighborhood, and help support local businesses and residential investment, by demonstrating that there is an active civic association”, said Karin Morris, a board member of PSCA.

The 12 X 18 inch aluminum signs will be at pedestrian height on existing poles on most major streets, except Broad Street, Washington Avenue, 11th Street, 9th Street, and Passyunk Avenue, which have their own business-related signage or already have an abundance of traffic-related signs. The signs will be mostly mid-block, avoiding signage-filled intersections.
