ABOUT UPPER NORTHWEST

Germantown, East Germantown, Blue Bell Hill, West Mount Airy, East Mount Airy, Chestnut Hill.

The Upper Northwest district, oriented around the Germantown Avenue commercial corridor, is known for its historic homes, tree-lined streets, and excellent public transportation. The district is situated to the east of Wissahickon Park. Key issues are revitalizing greater Germantown, supporting historic preservation efforts throughout the district, planning for transit-oriented development along the Chestnut Hill East and Chestnut Hill West rail lines and at Wayne Junction Station, improving the pedestrian-oriented Germantown and Chelten commercial corridors, and retrofitting an historically and architecturally significant housing stock to meet the needs of contemporary households.
