What does this mean? It means today it is our civic responsibility to vote!! Let our electeds know that we DO care who our leaders are and we ARE monitoring their ability (or not) and willingness (or not) to represent us, the Constituents.

Over-development is one of the most important issues in this election, threatening life as we know it in our beloved Carroll Gardens, and your vote can help reign it in.

Vote for the candidate of your choice but remember to go VOTE!

Let the electeds know you care! Vote and remind all your family and friend to do the same! Thank you. Our community depends on your participation in this critical aspect of our democracy.

Thank you.



With the "Protect Our Homes" petition, CORD was formed in May, 2007. This petition arose as an overwhelmingly negative response to the coming of the over-sized 360 Smith Street Development at the corner of Smith Street and Second Place (Aka Oliver House; aka 131 Second Place). This petition, which had well over three thousand signatures, led to a new zoning text amendment in summer of 2008.

We the undersigned Carroll Gardens homeowners and residents, are appalled by the "as of right" ruling which allows owners and developers to erect buildings in our neighborhood with no regard to the impact they will present to our quality of life and the value of our homes........
