Rebuilding Philadelphia Neighborhoods, One Community Space at a Time
8 a.m. Thursday, May 4, Center for Architecture + Design, 1218 Arch St.
Nicole Westerman and Kira Strong will provide an overview and status update of Philadelphia’s Rebuilding Community Infrastructure initiative aka Rebuild. Rebuild is Mayor Jim Kenney’s seven-year, $500 million program to revitalize neighborhood parks, recreation centers, playgrounds and libraries with the goals of promoting equity and encouraging economic growth across the city. These improvements are also expected to promote educational opportunities for children, support healthy lifestyles for all, improve public safety in our shared spaces and create jobs for Philadelphians.
Nicole is Rebuild’s executive director; Kira is deputy director of design and construction.
