Mission of the CVCA
The Charles Village Civic Association (CVCA) works with residents, businesses, community groups, local institutions, and local government to preserve, enhance, and promote the quality of life in the greater Charles Village community.
The CVCA informs neighbors of news and updates through The Charles Villager, CVCA website, and a weekly e-newsletter, as well as through various social media platforms. CVCA assists with the organization of neighborhood activities, such as the annual Charles Village Festival, to build a sense of community and improve the quality of life within the Village.
Through the CVCA, community voices are heard on planning, zoning, liquor, traffic calming, and other issues affecting our neighborhood. We prevent crime and build community through the Neighborhood Walkers in partnership with The Charles Village Community Benefits District. We support strong schools and arts and recreation activities for our children and youth.
