Overbrook West Neighbors Community Development Corporation (OWN)
We Are #OverbrookProud
Founded in 2018, Overbrook West Neighbors Community Development Corporation (OWN) is comprised of community stakeholders--concerned neighbors, business leaders and anyone who is concerned about Overbrook--working together to keep our community livable and ensure it is thriving. Our target area is bordered by 56th Street (east), 63rd Street (west), Lancaster Avenue (north) and Lansdowne Avenue (south). Our work is led by, with and for our Overbrook neighbors. We seek to work collaboratively with all of our neighbors, business associations and civic organizations to improve the quality of life in Overbrook and throughout our West Philadelphia communities.
OWN is focused on enhancing commerce throughout the Overbrook section of Lancaster Avenue, (Upper Lancaster Avenue Corridor, PA Rt. 30), working with residents and community stakeholders to improve our quality of life, and serving as the Registered Community Organization (RCO) for our community to address all zoning concerns.
Our website is a living thing that constantly evolves and reflects the beauty of our community. Each day it grows and expands to include many elements and facets of our Overbrook neighborhood.
