Classic Towns Closes

After 11 years, designating 30 “classic” communities, reaching over 420,000 online visitors, Classic Towns of Greater Philadelphia is coming to a close.The Classic Towns marketing program was launched with initial support from the William Penn Foundation in 2008. This initiative supported reinvestment in the region’s older suburbs and urban neighborhoods through strategic messaging and branding about the benefits urbanism, smart growth, and transit-oriented development have on a community’s quality of life. In 2019, the Classic Towns marketing program was discontinued but the work that goes into creating livable communities continues. Merchantville was designated a Classic Town in 2008. Here's a recap and highlights from the program: https://dvrpc.org/ClassicTowns/
