The Tacony Community Development Corporation has initiated a market study and strategic planning process in order to set a great direction for Tacony’s future. We appreciate your input! We will be posting several surveys here for various stakeholders in the Tacony neighborhood and we would love to hear your ideas.
Working together with residents, business owners, local institutions, and other Tacony leaders, this process will craft a vision for the future of Torresdale Avenue and Tacony.

The Tacony Community Development Corporation is the neighborhood’s primary driver for change. Residents first founded the organization in 2001 as an all-volunteer group focused on preserving the neighborhood’s great housing stock. With the more recent Tacony Historic Revitalization Project, the CDC has re-focused its small budget and staff on revitalizing the Torresdale Avenue commercial corridor. Despite this focus, it does continue to provide commercial and residential support services throughout the neighborhood. The service area is bounded by Cottman Avenue, Frankford Avenue, Robbins Avenue, and the Delaware River.
