5th Street Project
The North 5th Street Revitalization Project (N5SRP) is committed to improving the North 5th Street commercial corridor and surrounding area in Philadelphia’s Olney neighborhood.
N5SRP was founded by Olney residents and KCDSC in 2007 as a focused reinvestment toward one of Philadelphia’s most historic and diverse main streets. Since its inception, N5SRP has worked to enhance the quality of life of merchants and residents in and near the North 5th Street commercial corridor by improving the physical environment, preventing crime, increasing economic activity and opportunities, and building community ties.
In 2008, N5SRP began receiving funding from the Philadelphia Commerce Department and has since expanded in its staffing and breadth of services. As a community-based program, N5SRP’s work is driven by the ideas and concerns of the community.
