Recommendations

5th Square's Steering Committee offers these ballot recommendations, Read full Ballot Question here.  

  • Question 1: Vote NO

    5th Square stands firmly against SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation) and any attempts to suppress neighbors having a voice in shaping their community. If it passes, Philadelphia taxpayers would be responsible for paying any legal judgments against RCOs without these RCOs also being held accountable when violating standards and requirements set by the Department of Planning & Development. Our city should not be burdened with tough budget decisions while paying RCO-related legal penalties. Ultimately we must oppose Question 1 because it further codifies the RCO system that does not equitably amplify community voices.
