Susquehanna Community Development Association

The SCDA was formed October 2001 in order to improve the community through beautification projects, business revival and efforts to increase the participation in community betterment by the residents of the town. The Susquehanna Community Development Association has partnered with the Susquehanna Borough, The Trehab Center and the PA Department of Community and Economic Development to help revitalize our business district and designated “Elm St” neighborhoods that surround our downtown. Our organization is made up of volunteers who help in all areas of community renewal. Some our committees include: Parks & Rec, Garden Club, Events (Hometown Days, Tree Lighting and breakfast with Santa), Harvest of the Arts, Neighborhood and Economics and Safe Clean and Green.
