Neighborhoods:

Overbrook, Carroll Park, Haddington, Morris Park, Cobbs Creek, Dunlap, Mill Creek, Belmont, Mantua.

Key Issues:

The West district is predominantly residential in character. Existing row homes are affordable for young families and there is a large area of new housing in Mill Creek. Major streets include Haverford Ave. and 60th St. Key issues in West Philadelphia are vacant homes, vacant lots and a lack of quality commercial options. The high vacancy rate contributes to crime problems, disinvestment and a lack of home equity. Commercial corridors are generally under-performing in comparison with the rest of the City. This means that residents have to travel further to get what they need, or settle for lower quality products and services.
