As promised, we are holding our City Leaders accountable. Per our Multi-Community Emergency Town Hall on May 5th (watch it here), elected and appointed City Leaders agreed to address the escalating safety issue of ATVs, motorcycles, slingshots, dirtbikes and modified cars running rampant on commercial corridors, boulevards and residential streets. Once again, we are asking for a fully funded City Action Plan to address this systemic safety issue.
Join with QVNA and our fellow Civics in this Call for Action on Wednesday, June 9th at 6pm. Register for this Zoom meeting HERE.
Confirmed City Leaders include:
- Tumar Alexander, City Managing Director
- Rich Montanez, Streets Deputy Commissioner
- Ralph DiPietro, Licenses & Inspection Acting Commissioner
- Robert Listenbee, Office of the District Attorney of Philadelphia
- Councilman Mark Squilla, 1st District
- Councilman Allan Domb, At-Large
- Councilman Derek Green, At-Large
We need to know how and when City Leaders will collaborate and prioritize a fully funded action plan to address this urgent safety issue. The action plan needs to:
- Tighten up laws (written by Council Members who represent you)
- Enforce laws (provide Philadelphia Police with the necessary resources)
- Fund initiatives (allocated by the Managing Director’s office)
- Prosecute violators (action plan from the District Attorney’s office to support the work of Council and Police)
Civics need City accountability. These are the organizations led by volunteer residents whose hours and efforts on the ground support their neighborhoods.
This meeting will also be live-streamed at Facebook.com/queenvillage.
