PACDC’s Equitable Development Policy Platform offers 22 recommendations to lay the foundation for a thriving and inclusive future for Philadelphia that benefits all communities, all residents and all workers. Over 100 community leaders and residents were interviewed to identify 22 recommendations that fall into six categories: Quality of Life, Inclusive Communities, Anti-Displacement, Housing, Economic Development and Vacancy and Blight. Recommended actions will help to create an equitable city in which all residents have access to essential ingredients for environmental,economic, social, and cultural well-being including quality jobs, entrepreneurial opportunities, viable housing choices, public transportation, good schools, strong social networks, safe and clean streets and public spaces, and a voice in the future of their community.
