Changes in Brooklyn's Prospect-Lefferts Gardens neighborhood spell trouble for everyday families. Stand with us to protect our community!

Tell Eric Adams: Respect Prospect Park!

Eric Adams is the new Brooklyn Borough President. He wants to rezone Empire Boulevard into a new residential community just steps from Prospect Park.

Call Eric Adams and tell him that we like our neighborhood the way it is!

Our Fight

Prospect-Lefferts Gardens is the last affordable neighborhood surrounding Prospect Park.

Residential development along Empire Boulevard would:

  • Displace hardworking families as prices rise and demand for additional housing grows
  • Increase congestion on streets, sidewalks, buses, and subways
  • Strain our aging infrastructure by adding thousands of new water, sewer, electricity, and gas customers
  • Raise taxes on middle-class homeowners already struggling to get by
  • Cheapen Prospect Park by transforming it from an oasis into a tourist trap

Stand with MTOPP to save our neighborhood!

Tell Karim Camara: Represent Your Constituents!

Assemblyman Camara urged MTOPP to collect signatures in opposition to reckless development along Empire Boulevard.

We collected nearly four thousand signatures, but he now refuses to meet with us.

The time has come to remind Karim Camara who he represents.

Demand a Speaking Slot on December 9th!

Take a Stand for Democracy.

Community Board 9 wishes we would just "shut up."
Imagine if we did. Tenants, homeowners, clergy, and other neighborhood stakeholders would still be in the dark about falsified voting records at the September 23 meeting. Tuesday is your chance to demand a correction in person.

URGENT: Get on the Community Board's Agenda!

They tried ignoring us. They tried misleading us. They even screamed "Shut Up" to a packed auditorium.

We won't let CB9 ignore old business from the last meeting.

Call Community Board 9 during the week between 9 AM and 5 PM and demand a speaking slot at their October 28 meeting! The agenda item is old business.
