Who We Are
In July of 2000, a group of community stakeholders convened with the purpose of developing a new vision for McKees Rocks, one that would build upon the great assets our borough possesses. That vision would ultimately materialize in the form of the Borough’s Strategic Revitalization Plan, which was completed in 2003. The Plan calls for dramatic changes to lower McKees Rocks, some of which are now completed, and many of which are underway. The McKees Rocks Community Development Corporation was formed to implement this Plan, and is structured as a 501(c)(3) not-for profit corporation, employing a successful model utilized throughout the Pittsburgh region and nationwide. In 2008, the MRCDC expanded to include Stowe Township in our mission and leadership.
The MRCDC has become the bricks-and-mortar of McKees Rocks and Stowe revitalization. Our commitment is to the community, and our pursuit is economic prosperity for businesses, residents, and investors. In the MRCDC’s short history, we have greatly impacted the community at large. Through our efforts, McKees Rocks has seen over 20 million dollars of new investment, and that’s only the beginning.
Part of our mission is to provide resources for anyone looking to make McKees Rocks or Stowe a home for their family, business, or investments. Our board members are united by a love of our community and a firm belief that there is tremendous potential for its future. Whether you are buying a home or a business, we are here to help make your ambitions a reality.
None of this is possible without the continued support of the community. If you have any questions, want to help the CDC or vice-versa, please visit our contact page. We are committed to making McKees Rocks and Stowe the best they can be, and we’re here to assist you in reaching this goal.
