“One of our priorities is to create a clean and safe North Broad,” states Shalimar Thomas, Executive Director of the North Broad Renaissance. “This was a great opportunity for us to start this effort, introduce NBR to the community and work with individuals who support our efforts to revitalize North Broad Street.”

The 9th Annual Philly Spring Cleanup was a way for neighbors to get involved and support efforts to keep Philadelphia clean. The yearly effort works towards putting an end to litter and illegal dumping – not just on Cleanup day, but permanently.

The North Broad Renaissance (NBR) – in partnership with community stakeholders – is responsible for revitalizing, creating opportunity, and improving the economic power and overall quality of life along North Broad Street from City Hall to Germantown Avenue. Top priorities include clean and safe corridors, maintenance and landscaping, marketing and communications and street lighting.
