We are a group of citizens committed to working together to maintain and improve the quality of life in our community. Join us to share your views and help us in our efforts!
We list events that impact the lives and wellbeing of our citizens, both those called by others and those that we organize ourselves. These include local government meetings where issues of concern will be discussed, lobbying events, educational tours and talks, and more.
In our first year, we were able to prevent a trucking company from setting up a big rig truck maintenance and repair facility adjacent to our Historic District. The company filed two court appeals after being denied a zoning variance by the Zoning Hearing Board and then a building permit by the Borough, due largely to our outcry and the efforts of our excellent zoning attorney. Although this was basically a zoning dispute, the larger issue is the lack of planned growth and zoning integrity in the Borough.
We want appropriate businesses, service organizations, and affordable housing to take the place of large empty parcels, and we want to limit demolitions where historic buildings can be preserved and restored. All this takes communication and collaboration among many constituent groups. To this end, we continue to seek out and work with existing owners and potential buyers as well as government and private entities.

"We are a group of concerned citizens in Ambridge who believed it was inappropriate to build a tractor trailer terminal in a lot up against residences and the Ambride Historic District. We believed that the 24 hour, seven day a week marshaling yard would bring in a high volume of tractor trailers with associated noise, night lights, vibration, smells, and a visual impact that would disrupt our residential neighborhood and be destructive to our homes and the historic structures that make up community…[Due to our outcry and the efforts of our zoning lawyer] They have withdrawn both appeals and have put the property up for sale.
