Neighborhood Preservation Program
Funding Action Plan
The Neighborhood Preservation Plan (NPP) program, which began in 1975, focuses on revitalizing neighborhoods through local planning and community participation and building local capacity and coordination to maximize grant funding and sustain neighborhood vitality. Camden's Haddon Avenue is now one of 40 neighborhoods participating in the program.
The Haddon Avenue Implementation Plan (click here to review plan) seeks to provide a framework for making meaningful change for the Parkside community. Through a collaborative community process that included community engagement, data analysis, and review of prior research, this Implementation Plan proposes the following goals:
Goal 1: Support new and existing businesses and encourage entrepreneurship.
Goal 2: Create and curate a vibrant, culturally rich, and locally supportive corridor that helps tell the Parkside Story.
Goal 3: Enhance the physical conditions of the corridor to create a safer, more welcoming area for residents and visitors.
Goal 4: Strengthen, support, and sustain local residents and improvements to the corridor.
The NPP Program is funded by the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs
