About Us - Our Mission, The Challenge and Our Corporate Character
"Forge a future where all residents have equitable opportunity to thrive and contribute to the well-being of our neighborhoods."
As a broad-based community development corporation, we are often presented with the many needs and ambitions of our community residents, collaborative outreach and organizations. For the past three years we have received numerous proposals, and request for assistance across all spectrums. This three-year strategic plan will reflect our common desire for a vibrant City of Plant City, recognizes the conditions that must be addressed, and calls upon everyone to be active contributors to change.
