The Redevelopment Authority of the City of Meadville is a leading agency in downtown and neighborhood revitalization in the City of Meadville. Capitalizing on our natural environment, the RDA works to build a vibrant community with full employment, an expanding tax base, and attractive cultural and recreational activities.
We've been leading the way in our small town's exciting revitalization through the implementation of our Community Heart & Soul process, an innovative grant program for aspiring entrepreneurs, and a revived facade loan program. We're also responsible for addressing slum and blight in our town, supporting local businesses, and addressing our community's aging housing stock.
Meadville is a beautiful town of 13,000 residents in northwest Pennsylvania. Just 40 minutes from Erie, PA and under two hours from PIttsburgh, Cleveland, and Buffalo, our community offers a small town feel with access to large city amenities. People here value inclusion, health & safety, our local economy, our natural resources, a strong education system, opportunities for children & youth, and a accessible transportation.
