Our current focus involves challenging the current proposed development at 75 Monroe. This is the largest development in the Village since the Erie Canal.
Our larger vision is to provide opportunities for neighbors to get together to improve our community. We would like to provide channels for improved communication among residents, and foster friendship and civic engagement. Whether you want to help plan a community garden, an art festival, or engage with government in shaping the future of our Village, a strong civic association is the vehicle for positive change.
