MESSAGE FROM BOARD CHAIR AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Over the past twenty- five years, the South Street Headhouse District (SSHD) has continuously worked to bring improvements and economic vitality to this historic and famous community. Generations of Philadelphia-area families and businesses have worked, shopped, and lived in and around South Street and Fourth Street/Fabric Row. Today, the SSHD commercial area is home to over 450 businesses, the majority of which are independently-owned and operated. In times of a changing retail environment, shopping habits, and city demographics, the work of SSHD to keep the South Street business area attractive, vibrant, and economically growing and to champion this commercial corridor is more critical than ever.
Enclosed you will nd descriptions and images rejecting the wide range of initiatives and efforts that SSHD undertakes annually on behalf of business and property owners in the area, as well as for adjacent residential neighborhoods. This reauthorization plan and budget allows SSHD to continue to serve the multi-stakeholder community through its public safety, economic development, promotional, and critical cleaning efforts. In its next 5 year plan, SSHD intends to complete the high-pro le Headhouse Plaza improvement project, initiate a new district-wide mural arts festival and public art event, and secure designation as a Keystone Community under the National Main Streets Program to leverage and access additional resources and strategically strengthen our economic future.
