Mayor Jim Kenney speaks at the annual North Broad Renaissance (NBR) Mayoral Luncheon.

Leaders of the North Broad Renaissance (NBR) were among the 1400 business leaders at this year’s Annual Mayoral Luncheon to hear about the Mayor’s priorities for the businesss community and workforce development.

Among other remarks, the Mayor expressed the importance of a continued investments in talent, livability and logistices to remain competitive – “not just for Amazon, but for any company considering this region for its operations.”

We couldn’t agree more.

Our goal here at the NBR is to support revitalization efforts and work towards inclusive growth that could positively impact the entire North Broad community – including our most vulnerable population.

Through research and strategic planning, NBR has started placemaking efforts to incorporate hubs along the corridor that build on current community assets and provide real economic opportunities for the entire North Broad community. As Mayor Kenney mentioned, its important that we are working to develop “high-quality career pathways that prepare, attract, and retain a diverse and talented workforce,” and these hubs can serve that purpose.

North Broad is at the early stages of development, which allows stakeholders to implement innovative and sustainable tactics that can change the narrative around community revitalization and set a best practice that can be duplicated around the country.
The Chamber of Greater Philadelphia said it best – let’s get to work, Philly!
