CFRD Mission Statement

Citizens for Responsible Development (CFRD) is a non-profit community action organization that promotes the preservation and enhancement of a high quality of life within Cypress, CA and the surrounding communities. Working together with residents, city officials, and business interests, our mission is to ensure an appropriate balance of residential, open space, and commercial development in the areas we serve.

Our efforts to ensure our elected officials properly represent the best interests of the citizenry require funding to purchase signs, distribute flyers, and run ads in papers.  No one working at CFRD receives compensation for what they do; we’re all volunteers.  Many have asked how they can help our grassroots efforts.  In addition to volunteering, you can contribute funds.


There are two main ways to donate:


By mail: Send a check made out to “CFRD” and send to
