Quality of Place
Quality of Life (in Beaver County) is one of the five key areas of focus of the Beaver County Partnership for Community and Economic Growth. The Council collects and tells the region’s good stories about the region as a center for living a robust, healthy, fulfilling life, focusing on identifying where people are doing great things.
We are developing pilot projects in local communities to strengthen their fabrics and well-being. And, we are working to bring churches, civic organizations and mission groups together to improve life in our communities.
Our Mission: RiverWise employs sustainable development practices to create a regional identity around the rivers of Beaver County. At the heart of this work is a concerted effort to organize stakeholders to dream, learn, and collaborate about the future of our rivers. We are encouraging this process in two primary ways. First, we have formed ecodistricts in three communities (Aliquippa, Monaca, and Beaver Falls). Second, we are engaged in a growing list of projects aimed at activating community ideas and bringing sustainable development to life throughout Beaver County.
