The coalition has been working on several issues of importance to Berwyn and the surrounding communities. They remain concerned with the high number of homes being converted to student rentals. The NPC believes that these conversions left unchecked are bad for permanent residents and students alike. That's why they are working to restore balance to the housing market and assist families and owner occupants in purchasing homes in our neighborhoods. This is why the NPC organized a Homes Fair geared towards family/owner occupied buyers.
Since many of the issues are not unique to Berwyn, but rather are an issue throughout the College Park area, the task force joined with other communities the are facing the same set of problems. Hence, the reason the NPTF became the Neighborhood Preservation Coalition.
