Fox Chase Homeowners Association

The Fox Chase Homeowners Association (FCHA) is comprised of community homeowners committed to preserving the residential character of Fox Chase, to rally support for its improvement, and to have a meaningful civic voice for the neighborhood. FCHA works with elected officials, law enforcement, local businesses, and other community stakeholders to make Fox Chase a great place to call home.

FCHA is a Registered Community Organization (RCO) with Philadelphia’s City Planning Commission. The Zoning Code establishes a registry of community organizations to be managed by the Philadelphia City Planning Commission. The RCO system is designed to improve community notification of proposed developments and make community involvement more predictable across the City of Philadelphia.

FCHA is recognized as the Local RCO for Fox Chase and receives formal notice from developers whose proposed projects are within the neighborhood’s boundaries and require Zoning Board of Adjustment approval or Civic Design Review.

FCHA was founded in 1992 after a developer proposed building a large office building at the corner of Rhawn Street & Verree Road, across from the historic Knowlton Mansion.
