We proudly serve 10,000+ area residents and the thousands more who visit Philadelphia's "Garden District."
The Chestnut Hill Community Association (CHCA) is a membership organization and serves as a public forum for the residents and stakeholders of Chestnut Hill. This is the association through which community policy is discussed, and is the voice of the community to the city of Philadelphia regarding development, land use planning, and zoning issues. We also hold many cultural events throughout the year that bring residents together and opportunities to experience the charms of our community.
CHCA president Kathi Clayton said it seems as though all the neighborhood work and effort that went into fighting that project was worth it.
I am so pleased we all supported each other in this effort, and that we share a win! she said.
CHCA executive director Anne McNiff, who argued in December that the size of the proposed building would be detrimental to that area of the neighborhood, which is a gateway to Chestnut Hill, said on Thursday that she is thrilled.
On behalf of the community, the CHCA is very pleased with the outcome of the appeal and appreciative of all the hard work and diligent research that went in making our case, McNiff said in a statement to the Local.
