About WPCCA

The Woodbridge Potomac Communities Civic Association was started in October of 2008 by volunteers who wanted to see a better Woodbridge and were willing to work together to develop a plan to improve the community. 

Citizen involvement is what makes a strong community and a strong Civic Association. Our purpose is to unite the communities of Woodbridge to address issues such as land use, environment, transportation and development. WPCCA will also participate in civic matters throughout Prince William County, Virginia.

Any resident, business, non-profit organization or property owner in the Woodbridge Magisterial District, eighteen years of age or older, may join WPCCA. Membership requires annual registration and attendance of at least one meeting per year. The group meets nine times a year, the third Thursday of each month, taking off July, August, and December.
