The goal of the South Street Headhouse District, (SSHD) is to provide a safer, cleaner, well managed business district so that the area will continue to improve as a place to work, visit, shop and live.
The SSHD was established in 1993 as a locally directed Municipal Authority, (its authorization was extended in 1998 and scheduled for re-authorization in December 2017), for the purpose of improving public safety, cleaning and other services to supplement services being provided by the City of Philadelphia.
The SSHD continues to plan and support physical improvements, marketing and promotional initiatives designed to enhance the image and visibility of the business community as one of the most dynamic and diverse areas anywhere.
The 2017 South Street Headhouse District Annual Report and 5-year Plan is available for review.
There will be a public hearing concerning the re-authorization of the South Street Headhouse District, as well as the Five-Year Plan and Budget, on Wednesday October 11, 2017, from 6pm- 9pm located at Old Pine Community Center, 401 Lombard Street.
