Chestnut Hill feels like a village, but as part of the municipality of Philadelphia, we are regularly challenged with finding the best ways to advocate for the characteristics we hold dear in the face of change and new development. The Physical Division of the CHCA is on the forefront of managing change. Our volunteers work hard to help guide decisions that will have lasting impact for the community. Help us continue this important work. Make a donation to CHCA’s Annual Appeal. https://www.chestnuthill.org/donate.php (painting by Eddie Flotte-www.eddieflotte.com)
