Description:
The Park Slope Civic Council nurtures, defends, celebrates, and invigorates this community we call home. Without the Civic Council, the Park Slope we know today would not exist. In the 1950s and 1960s, we organized to stop urban renewal’s bulldozers, fought bank redlining, planted thousands of trees, and launched our annual House Tour to present Park Slope as an alternative to would-be suburbanites. In 1973, we secured our neighborhood’s future when we won designation of the Park Slope Historic District, and we helped safeguard its character in our push for the city’s first “downzoning,” passed in 2003.
