Founded in 1971 and incorporated in 1973 as the Southwest Community Council (SWCC), Citizens of Pigtown (COP) is the neighborhood association representing Pigtown residents and businesses in every effort to build community.  The mission of COP is to provide a platform to share ideas and information, foster relationships, promote activities, and advocate for everyone in our community.

We also work to be the link for youths, seniors, local businesses, developers, as well as new and long time residents.

Information, resources, and community participation is critical for Historic Pigtown to grow and recognize its full potential.  COP's efforts are to combine the coordination between Baltimore City officials and community partners to further advance Pigtown's development.

Much of the work COP does is organized at the committee level. We currently have three active committees, but you are welcome to create your own. Check our events page to see when we are meeting or email to learn how to participate. All committee meetings are open to the public.
