"As a long time member of Phoenix Community Alliance, it is especially gratifying to see how diverse the revitalization and development projects are in the Central Phoenix Corridor. The heart of Phoenix is alive and well".
"PCA is striving to complement city - building with community building...bringing in new voices - residents, neighborhoods, and businesses large and small - for a stronger, more inclusive alliance of the Phoenix community".
“Having spent time in most of the major cities on the right coast and the left coast and having lived in 13 states, I feel compelled to point out that nowhere else in my travels have I found an organization as fundamentally influential yet highly accessible as the PCA (Phoenix Community Alliance). To find an organization made up of civic, government and business members genuinely listening to each other and working together in meaningful and tangible ways for the betterment of the community at large is a rare and special thing. As a downtown resident and commercial real estate broker, I am hugely grateful for the opportunity to have my voice heard on committees shaping the near and long-term future of downtown Phoenix and I appreciate what PCA does to afford me access to decision makers who are influencing what's coming and for facilitating my understanding as to the reasons why.”
