60th Street Corridor Impact

As neighbors, it is important that we all play a part in creating a healthy, thriving community by maintaining clean streets. ACHIEVEability is committed to playing our part in partnership with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) and the Department of Commerce.

In partnership with PHS’s Community LandCare program and Cherry Blossoms Landscaping,150 addresses receive monthly care and maintenance throughout Haddington and Cobbs Creek. According to research done by Dr. Charles Branas, Associate Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, neighborhood greening is linked to significant reductions in certain crimes, such as gun assaults, as indicators linked to stress.

Additionally, ACHIEVEability works with ‘Brothers of Nature’ and the Department of Commerce, to provide cleaning and sweeping services along the 60th Street Commercial Corridor. In January alone, Brothers of Nature picked up more than 150 bags of trash. It’s our goal to empower residents to take ownership over the well-being of the neighborhood.
