CAPRI, a non-profit corporation, was formed in 2004 to act as a catalyst in revitalizing the Claysville area. The idea was initiated through the Claysville Business Association, in order to qualify for and receive many of the grants available for charitable corporations. Hence CAPRI was formed. The first project was, working through the Borough of Claysville, to administer a grant from Pennsylvania’s Department of Community and Economic Development. The grant was used for the new brick benches lining the sidewalks of Claysville, new trash receptacles, and colorful blooms in our new planters.

Our Mission

The mission of CAPRI is to improve the quality of life in the Claysville area by revitalizing the present while preserving its past. CAPRI will act as a catalyst to draw and coordinate local residents and organizations to work together in making the Claysville area a vibrant social, civic, and economic center of activities while celebrating our farming origins. We want our citizens and patrons to be proud to be a part of this historic farming community.

The goals of CAPRI are to create an attractive community, alluring new residents, businesses, shoppers and tourists; to help elicit awareness of our area’s uniqueness by building on our history and recognizing local resources; to educate the community regarding preservation and economic development strategies; and to create, organize and market local events, drawing people into the Claysville area.
