The Woodbridge Potomac Communities Civic Association’s unites the people of Woodbridge to build a stronger community. Association members examine issues that influence the quality of life in our neighborhoods, such as land use, transportation, development, education and the environment. They often also take a hands-on role in community improvements, from participating in planning meetings to performing river clean ups.
Any resident, business, non-profit or property owner in the Woodbridge Magisterial District, 18 or older, may join the Civic Association. Membership requires registration and attendance in at least one meeting per year. The Association is made up of individuals who have lived in Woodbridge for 30+ years as well as newer residents. Currently, the Board of Directors is working to recruit membership and expand the Association.

Civic Associations have evolved throughout the United States as a way for communities to be organized and present a united voice to the government officials.
While the group formed in October 2008 with the support of Woodbridge Magisterial District Supervisor Frank Principi, and works closely with the Supervisor’s office to provide citizen input on a number of issues, it is nonpartisan and nonpolitical. It does not engage in activities, which seek exclusively to promote or endorse the interests of a particular occupational, business, commercial, or other special interest organization.
