Committees Overview

Please contact us if you are interested in taking part in any of the following projects! Let us know if you have a new project that you believe our community would benefit from. Our committees are formed based on the interests of our members.


Historic District Committee

The historic district committee aims to achieve a "historic district" designation for our neighborhood. This will help maintain the neighborhood's unique culture, prevent over development and stop over crowding. CuRBA has been researching and gathering materials for this process. Checkout our page to learn more about the Prospect Heights Apartment House District and how we are trying to preserve the character of the neighborhood!

We need help, so please send us a message if you are interested in learning more about how you can get involved

Beautification Committee

The beautification committee is dedicated to keeping our street clean and beautiful. Currently we are focused on replanting trees and grass.

CuRBA has been participating in the Greenest Block contest organized by The Brooklyn Botanical Garden for three years. We received an honorable mention in 2018. We made the semi-finalists list again this year in the residential category. Next round of judging 22 July!

Special Events Committee

The West Indian Parade and the Brooklyn Marathon are two major events in our neighborhood. CuRBA ensures that our members are informed and that their concerns are taken into account in the making of these events.

Outreach to Cultural Institutions Committee

Our neighborhood's cultural institutes are part of what makes this block so great. CuRBA strives to benefit everyone in our neighborhood. Learn more about what's on our block.

Rat Committee

Our "Rat Pack" is committed to keeping Eastern Parkway rat free. We are continuously monitoring the block, so if you see something, say something! Please report any rat sightings to NYC 311, either through their website, app or by calling 311. All methods are free of cost and completely anonymous.
