Board of Directors

board_of_directors

The City Ave District is well-represented by a diverse Board of Directors made up of property owners and managers, institutional leaders, and business owners as well as many elected officials who serve as Ex-Officio members.

 

The Board is composed of nine representatives from Philadelphia and nine from Lower Merion Township. To serve on the Board, one must be a commercial or industrial property owner, or a merchant in the District.

 

These people are crucial to the ongoing success of City Ave:
