2016 proved to be momentous for University City District. Over the past year, we pushed forward transformational civic infrastructure projects, witnessed the impact of new and powerful approaches to economic opportunity, accelerated UCD's foundational work in community-building and stewardship, and received national attention for our accomplishments and publications. 

We're pleased to share highlights from the past year in our newest publication, 2016 Annual Review: Breaking New Ground. This online report highlights major breakthroughs including Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's visit to the West Philadelphia Skills Initiative, our groundbreaking for Trolley Portal Gardens, achievements from the first year of our landscaping venture Green City Works, and much more. We hope you'll enjoy this summation of our work, and we look forward to continuing to advance our mission of changing places and changing lives.
