OLCAA  Partnerships

Block Captains

Currently more than 50 East Oak Lane residents volunteer as Block Captains, to organize the block, register it with Philadelphia More Beautiful,  coordinate communications with neighbors, and serve as a liaison with OLCAA.


An organized block can be safer and add to the beauty of the neighborhood. Also, joining a network strengthens the community by closer connections with local city, state, and federal agencies. Let's get organized!

Bromley House

East Oak Lane Business Association

The Business Association has adopted the neighborhood vision for a unified design

along the business corridors, and works with business owners to clean and green

their properties.


As OLCAA is now the local Registered Community Organization (RCO) in this area,

when a business or resident wants to change the variance of a property, they are

now required to meet with the community and the RCO before their Zoning

Board of Adjustment (ZBA) hearing.

to reach their highest potential.


The school fosters partnerships among students, parents, staff members, and

members of society. Ellwood is dedicated to excellence.
