Curb Appeal - The Broad Street Clean

Cleaner streets can have a number of positive effects for a city and/or neighborhood, including lowered crime rates, increased property values, safer water supply, higher tourist appeal, and more civic pride. So please join us as we "take a bite out of grime" by removing street trash on Broad Street and spread the word to commuters and pedestrians about how effort in this area can make Philly a better place to live, work, play, and p[rosper.

Curb Appeal is an initiative of the Philadelphia Renaissance Project, an entity established to develop innovative solutions to civic challenges in the Philadelphia metropolitan region.

    This sounds like an awesome program. Something that I wanted to get involved in or organize myself.
    After being a new resident of Philly, I have noticed the beauty of this great city & the destruction of it. All it needs is some attention to clean the streets. I am excited to see this is actually a reality.

    Hey everyone, I wanted to give you a quick heads up regarding the event. We will be meet at Broad and Glenwood subway stop (street-level). If you are familiar with Philly, there is a Pathmark supermarket there. We will clean, walking towards Center City. Depending upon turnout, we may formulate another group walking uptown. We will provide supplies but don't let us stop you from bringing your favorite pushbroom. Any questions, let me know. Thanks for your interest and support.

    Can I get more information on the Philadelphia Renaissance Project and is Carl Dash still involved with it? (I googled it and didn't see much information on it, but I saw Carl's name attached to a few things and I know him from some things in my neighborhood).

      Hi Ingrid. Yes, Carl Dash is the individual behind the Philadelphia Renaissance Project and will be the best person to ask more about his project. One of the goals of Curb Appeal is to inspire and increase the level of civic engagement in the community.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
