  • What is UFCA?
    UFCA stands for United Francisville Civic Association. It was founded in summer 2018 when residents saw an unfulfilled need for civic engagement in the neighborhood. The civic association, as outlined in the 2007 neighborhood plan, became defunct and we are seeking to revitalize it in order to fulfill this plan. UFCA’s mission is to improve the quality of life for its residents and businesses. We invite everyone within the Francisville boundaries to participate and collaborate in community meetings, social events, and more.
  • What is the difference between a Civic Association and a CDC? What is an RCO?
    Nearly every neighborhood in Philadelphia has both a CDC (Community Development Corporation) and Civic/Neighbors Association. A Civic Association is a community organization that is made up of neighbors, usually on a strictly volunteer basis. Civic Associations address quality of life issues and connect residents with resources throughout the city. A CDC can own and develop property—occasionally a CDC will maintain a small staff to oversee the day to day operations of the real estate that they have. CDCs sometimes partner with developers to create community spaces in vacant lots and enhance the commercial corridors in a neighborhood. Both Civic Associations and CDCs can be RCOs (Registered Community Organizations), even if they are in the same neighborhood. For more information on RCOs, please visit the City of Philadelphia’s City Planning Commission page.
  • Who can participate?
