Who We Are
Morrisville First is a community group interested in improving and renewing Ward 1 in Morrisville, including the surrounding area. We are funded through a five year Neighborhood Implementation Grant from the Wachovia Regional Foundation (now "Wells Fargo Foundation"). This grant was the result of the work of many people in and around Morrisville. Without their hard work and dedication this would not have been possible. We thank you profusely!
The geographic area defined in the grant includes Morrisville's First Ward, the Robert Morris Apartments and businesses and residents on both sides of Bridge Street. This four year grant was received by Bucks County Housing Group, a local nonprofit whose supportive housing projects include the Robert Morris Apartment Complex. A map of the grant area can be seen here: Links

Anyone who loves Morrisville and wants to participate, you are welcome to post your photos, use our calendar to post your events, or write in our forum as members of this website.
Our focus, established through a survey of residents of the study area is to:
We understand that these goals are interconnected and have set district milestones. Our goals include creating and supporting community events, yard contests, neighborhood beautification, and a neighborhood watch. Since we are just getting started (March 10, 2010), if you have an interest in the Advisory Council or would like help with your pet project, just give us a shout!
