Mission Statement

CCRA is a non-profit, volunteer-led organization devoted to making Center City a better place to live, work and play. Our members volunteer thousands of man-hours each year to a wide range of projects that help preserve and improve the quality of life in Center City for the benefit of residents, local merchants and visitors.

Description

Organized originally as an ad hoc citizen group in 1947 to resist city plans to dig up Rittenhouse Square for an underground garage, over the years CCRA has helped to protect the unique historical and residential character of our community while encouraging responsible development. We work on projects, large and small, that contribute to parks, schools, tree planting, clean streets, neighborhood safety, recycling, and community events, among other things. We also provide opportunities to socialize with other civic-minded members of the community during events like our annual house tour and Chili Challenge.

CCRA activities are supported mostly by member fees and we do not receive funding from the City. CCRA offers memberships at different price levels for residents, seniors, students and local businesses. We hope you willjoin usin improving the quality of life in Center City.
