We have to remind people what Philadelphia stands for, and work together thoughtfully and compassionately to make it a reality.
We’re in the process of creating a new City website from the ground up because we realize phila.gov isn’t as easy to use as it should be.
Below you’ll find the City’s news listing. However, it’s not a complete list. In the future, we’d like to centralize the City of Philadelphia’s news, events, service notifications, and blog posts in one place. We’ll update this page as we release enhanced designs. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, we’re happy to consider your suggestions. What City news and events would you like to know more about, and why? Your insights might inform future design and content improvements to the site.
- Use the site’s feedback links to alert us to content errors and design ideas.
- Sign up to be a beta.phila.gov tester. We’ll contact you for specific feedback on the News & events section and other site features.
