Rebuild Philly is a $500 million program to revitalize neighborhood parks, recreation centers, playgrounds, and libraries across the city. Rebuild focuses on promoting equity and fairness across Philadelphia. Most of Rebuild’s community investment will go to distressed or struggling neighborhoods where concentrated poverty, elevated crime rates, and heightened health risks are impacting the lives of local residents. Where possible, Rebuild will also look to invest in neighborhoods that may be growing and present opportunities to spur additional economic growth. These are neighborhoods where Rebuild projects can attract even more investment to serve and stabilize the community.
This upcoming Wednesday, 11/1/17 there will be a public meeting of the Rebuild Oversight Board at the Kingsessing Rec Center starting at 6PM. The Rebuild Oversight Board is a public forum to review Rebuild’s progress and make recommendations for the program.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
