Roxborough: A Place With Roots

Since 1992 the Roxborough Development Corporation (RDC) has spearheaded improvements to the Ridge Avenue Commercial Corridor. Ridge Avenue is the neighborhood commercial corridor for the Roxborough community. The Roxborough Development Corporation’s (RDC) Board, volunteers, and staff have been working hard since 1992 to enhance Ridge Avenue.

The RDC focuses on promoting special events, beautifying and cleaning Ridge Avenue, helping existing business to expand while recruiting new ones, and marketing and communicating about the corridor and the organization throughout the year. As one of the 14 Business Improvement Districts (BID) in the City of Philadelphia, since 2003 the RDC has collected a yearly assessment from property owners along Ridge Avenue to pay for additional services that benefit all property owners in the district.
