Chairman’s Message

The Phoenix Community Alliance (PCA) launched in 1983 by local business leaders and began with one big idea: to create a dynamic downtown for a great 21st century city — Phoenix!

Economic vibrancy and quality of life were at the top of PCA’s to-do list. Thirty years later, our organization is proud of being a significant part of the many accomplishments achieved for Greater Downtown Phoenix. No task has been too large or too small for our proactive Members.

“We do not work alone, but work as collaborators with our public partners and all stakeholders.”

Over and over again our Members enthusiastically take on those tough, long-term urban challenges. We do not work alone, but work as collaborators with our public partners and all stakeholders.

New Challenges

Yet, our work is not complete and today we face new economic, as well as other challenges. We need to continue moving quality development forward and to use appropriate new tools like the urban form-based code and creative financing solutions to incite new development and industry. We are committed to drawing upon resources; to making connections, physical, social, and economic, and to continuing our work as a catalyst. We helped launch the Discovery Triangle Development Corporation, are supporting the emerging health and bioscience industry, and working with young business leaders to carry on our mission for generations to come, and doing so much more!

What we need are passionate leaders with considerable imagination, cooperation, and resources committed to making Phoenix great! Please join us! You won’t be disappointed, but be prepared to roll up your sleeves. We need your help!
