A lot of changes have been happening in our neighborhood. Cedar Park Neighbors is a community association representing all residents in our neighborhood. And the board of directors has asked for your help figuring out what role to play as the neighborhood undergoes change.
It’s an exciting time
We’re attracting new residents. People are buying and fixing up blighted property. Some great new businesses have opened up.
But there is also anxiety about the rate of change, especially as rents have gone up, and some residents will face property tax bills that they can’t afford.
The kind of change Cedar Park is experiencing today generates issues about things like affordability, zoning, land use, parking, education, and quality of life. Cedar Park Neighbors is frequently asked by its members to respond to these kinds of concerns.
Additionally, the Philadelphia City Planning Commission has asked Cedar Park Neighbors and other community organizations to give input on its new plan for Southwest Philadelphia and University City. In order to best represent your interests, the board will also use survey responses to guide participation in a city-led planning process. Cedar Park Neighbors will not be writing or creating a plan of its own.
Help make the survey results as meaningful and representative and forward the survey to everyone you know in the neighborhood and reach out to neighbors who do not have internet access. In addition to this online survey, a print version will be distributed through a network of block captains.
We need your help figuring out how to best represent the interests of all neighbors. Please take this survey to share your thoughts:
