The Philadelphia Crosstown Coalition is a PA non-partisan, non-profit corporation created in 2014.  It is directed by an elected board of volunteers nominated by its members, who represent a federation of dues-paying civic associations in good standing with the Planning Commission as a Registered Community Organization (RCO), who have come together to advocate for improving the quality of life, as well as to support each other through the sharing of  information, resources, best practices and realize economies of scale for the benefit of its member organizations in order to empower member RCOs to best fulfill their obligations under the zoning code.



2021 Update: The Coalition has no relation to, and is not to be confused with a newly formed "Citywide RCO Coalition of Philadelphia"
