Will Lippitt

As a recent arrival to the West Mt Airy neighborhood, the strength of this community and deep connectivity among the neighbors stand out as core values that resonate deeply for Will. Alongside the high quality of life, verdant gardens, tree lined streets, many parks, and walkable retail, this community spirit was among the many qualities that drew his family to this particular pocket of Philadelphia from Seattle last year.  Since arriving, Will been inspired to serve the neighborhood-drawing on his passion for stewardship of public space as a Master Watershed Steward for Carpenters Woods, and recently bringing his Real Estate development expertise to the neighborhood zoning committee.

Will is excited to bring 10 years of construction and real estate experience to the neighborhood board to assist in navigating the current wave of development activity. As an alumni from Brown University in Architectural History and Urban Studies departments, he is passionate about urban design and the shared experience of public space.   Having served in board positions with community nonprofits in the past, Will has earned some useful perspective on how to draw forth the voices of all of the stakeholders that may not otherwise be heard or empowered. As a member of the WMAN board, he hopes to be an advocate for robust discussion that brings the neighbors together and collaborative effort that delivers proactive and thoughtful progress.
