Along the beautiful banks of the Schuylkill River, on the evening of October 6th, the Coalition for Philadelphia’s Riverfronts (CPR) made their inaugural address to bikers, joggers, professionals and interested citizens about their goal of creating a greenway that follows the banks of the Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers.
The goal of the coalition is to rescue Philadelphia’s riverfronts from development and save them to be used as recreational trails. CPR explains that not only do people tend to have a higher opinion of cities with greenways, they also provide cleaner water, commuter routes, opportunities for public health benefits due to increased recreational space and enhanced economic and commercial development.
There are many organization that have an interest and a stake in this project, the TTF included. The coalition will allow all of these organization to work together and be a more powerful voice for change.
