The Citizens Association of Georgetown has, in one form or another, been representing the interests of Georgetown residents in local affairs for more than a century.

The organization traces its roots to 1878, when the Georgetown Citizens Association was established as the District of Columbia’s first civic group.

By the early 1920s, the group was successfully campaigning for the community’s first zoning rules to block an invasion of apartment buildings in what was then a community comprising mainly single-family homes.

Just a few more days until Georgetown University is back in session and we walk into the next season here in Georgetown.

One of the beautiful things about this place we call our home is the blend of ever-changing culture in the midst of historic preservation.

The balance of safeguarding the good while learning and growing with the new is one of our best qualities!

As the seasons change, new students + tourists make an impact our town, we count ourselves the lucky ones who get to call this place our home all year long.
