The district works closely with our fellow community members to create and offer a wide variety of services, resources and benefits ranging from community beautification to workforce development, noise reduction, safety services and much more. The district strives to make this great urban community even better. Its actions and initiatives are led by a board of directors and funded by founding sponsor Temple University. 

As neighbors, partners and local business owners, we all share the deep pride we have in our neighborhood and the great hope we feel for its future.
