Making sure the original light rail line got built didn’t signal an end to PCA’s commitment to mass transit projects. When Prop 104–an initiative that aimed to boost sales tax for transit from .04 to .07 for a 35-year commitment–went before voters in 2015, PCA was a major force in the campaign, advocating to its membership and beyond that for Phoenix to become a world-class city, expanding our transit and increasing pedestrian connectivity was paramount. Prop 104 passed by a comfortable margin and those tax dollars will help pay for new light rail routes, expanded bus service, street repairs and transit infrastructure.
When you are with business leaders of the quality that we have here at PCA – it’s unrivaled.
The core promise and opportunity for PCA is to build a great City by connecting the endeavors of its Members and its mission. Arts, Culture, Education, Development, Affordability, Sports, Health all work better together and build on each other, never alone. It is what separates PCA from other organizations, such as Chambers of economic development. PCA connects the dots and bridges the gaps that continue to challenge.

"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".
"I would never consider dropping my membership".
"During central Phoenix's "lean times," the Phoenix Community Alliance focused on city-building to help fill-in key puzzle pieces like the Arizona Center, Convention Center, downtown and midtown high-rises, Steele Indian School Park, light rail, and the presence of higher education, among others. After the Great Recession and the current revitalization cycle, 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".
