Our Mission


The mission of the 2nd Century Alliance is to develop and execute a strategy to build the City of Coatesville’s capacity to improve current conditions, stabilize the socio-economic stature of the City, foster economic development, and bring resources and community partners together for these purposes.


The 2nd Century Alliance is a Public/Private Partnership, funded by a collaboration between contributions from the private sector and the Chester County Department of Community Development.





The 2nd Century Alliance employs a five-point approach to community revitalization: 


     Residential Neighborhood Strengthening


Downtown Revitalization


 Jobs & Economic Opportunity


  Quality of Life




You can find a detailed action plan supporting these primary strategies here.
