MANAYUNK SPECIAL SERVICES DISTRICT

The Manayunk Special Services District (MSSD) was established in 1996 under the Municipality Authority Act of 1945 and is supported by the City of Philadelphia and the City Council. MSSD's mission is to create a clean, attractive, safe, and well-managed business district so that Manayunk can successfully compete as an environment to live, work, shop, dine, and visit. MSSD initiates capital improvements and maintains maintenance of the district. Although MSSD is a separate entity, it works in partnership with the Manayunk Development Corporation (MDC) to support the organization’s marketing and promotional efforts to enhance the overall image of Manayunk. In 2012, the special services district was renewed for another 10 year period. Click here to download the MSSD's Bylaws.
