Fight Philly Blight recognizes thatthe most significant way to bring positive change to the city is by doing any and everything possible to spur coordinated economic development, block by block
We have plenty of space available for repurpose in the form of city owned vacant lots, warehouses and other properties.
And plenty of people who sense the urgent necessity to invest time, labor, and other resources in this cause.
There are also plenty of individuals and organizations working toward this same goal in their own way.
Fight Philly Blight coordinates this blog to host discussion and interaction online to creates citizen action
for improving Philadelphia’s communities through economic development
This approach to coordination and collaboration may start online, but it can’t end there.
Empowering community members to turn around their communities by creating income, employment, ownership within their neighborhood is the most dramatic and effective way to stabilize a community long-term.
Fight Philly Blight has an ultimate vision of bringing together members through Collaborative Community Workspaces as a stepping stone to this type of entrepreneurship and community engagement.
