SOSNA is holding a City Services Community Meeting on Wednesday, March 11th at 7pm. We invite residents to learn about various tax relief programs, how to report quality of life issues to the City through 311, and receive information on Philly's Bike Share system- Indego, which is launching this spring. We will have representatives on hand to present information and answer all of your questions!
Lastly, would you like to see more vibrant shops, restaurants and businesses in our neighborhood? You can help the Economic Development Committee make that happen by alerting us to what properties are available in South of South! If you see an available storefront or advertisement when out and about in the neighborhood, tweet us! First, follow us on twitter and then tweet @PhillySOSNA with the hashtag #SOSNAbiz4sale; include a picture of the available space as well as the address. (Zoning designations or recent uses (restaurant, salon, office) are helpful to include, too!) All tweets will help us keep the SOSNA Business Website up-to-date for business owners looking to set up shop in the neighborhood.
