About the McKees Rocks Community Development Corporation
The McKees Rocks Community Development Corporation (MRCDC) works to restore community pride and facilitate investment in the McKees Rocks neighborhood in an effort to attract and retain residents and businesses. The organization is battling an area with poor public perception due to poverty, high vacancy rates and decades of decline.
The MRCDC has begun to redevelop buildings in the community for community use, and the riverfront has been an attraction for resident and business entities. Safety is a high priority for the MRCDC, shown by the increased efforts to grow a Block Watch in the neighborhood.
The MRCDC organizes a few events each year to showcase the development efforts and successes. These events help to establish hometown pride by increasing positive community publicity.
