Take the Broad Street Median Parking Survey

During the DNC last month, the City of Philadelphia banned cars from parking on the Broad Street median between Washington and Oregon avenues. Although it’s technically always illegal, the City only enforces the ban on parking in this median during special events, such as the DNC, the Broad Street Run, and the Pope’s visit. Some advocates are now calling on the city to permanently enforce the ban on parking on the Broad Street median. We want to know what you think!

Take the survey: https://isrtu.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_74aLdHlX8mym9JX

This survey is brought to you by The Philadelphia Citizen and is powered by BeHeardPhilly at Temple University. Special thanks to our other partners, Passyunk Square Civic Association, Newbold Civic Association, Point Breeze Community Development Corporation, Girard Estate Area Residents, Newbold Neighbors Association and West Passyunk Neighbors Association.
