CMA home

We are rebuilding communities in downtown Phoenix brick by brick and person by person.



About Us...

Capitol Mall Association (CMA) is a Community Development Corporation and as a 501 ©, 3 non-profit CMA it is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of residents, area property owners and business owners, and advisors from the City of Phoenix, the State of Arizona and local private sector business leaders.

CMA primarily serves the downtown Phoenix neighborhoods bound by I-10 Freeway North and the rail road tracks at Harrison Street South; 27th Avenue to 7th Avenue West to East. In 2007, the Board of Directors voted to expand CMA's housing services mission City Wide with a focus on underserved areas.

CMA views its mission as enhancing the quality of life within the City of Phoenix neighborhoods by supporting programs and activities that encourage neighborhood revitalization, historic preservation, increased homeownership and economic development.

CMA's neighborhood revitalization mission is dedicated to sustaining and rebuilding safe neighborhoods by developing various levels of quality programs. As the lead non-profit agency in local areas, CMA supports community based programs such as: Affordable Housing, Safe, Economic and Efficient local Multi-Modal transportation systems, Local Streets and Alley Safety, Individual and Community Leadership Development, Local Retail and Community Services Economic Development, Arts and Culture, After School Programs, Park Programs, Historic Preservation, Community Safety, and Crime and Blight Reduction.
