An Action Plan for the Central Delaware
In 2006, Mayor Street signed an executive order assigning PennPraxis (the clinical arm of the University of Pennsylvania School of Design) the task of creating a vision for the future of the central Delaware riverfront. This document, An Action Plan for the Central Delaware, is a guide to the implementation of that civic vision. Its goal is to lay out a clear plan of action for the redevelopment of the river in the next ten years. Building on the foundation supplied by the civic vision, this action plan recommends that the riverfront is redeveloped over the next ten years in agreement with the vision, in a manner that opens the riverfront up to residents, improves the health of the city’s economy and improves environmental conditions along the river’s edge.
