Description & History
Coney Island Beatification Project, Inc. was formed for the civic purpose to encourage community involvement and education in the enhancement of the environment and the resiliency of post super- storm Sandy in Coney Island and surrounding areas. Community activities will be conducted through projects that augment neighborhood greening such as design, development and / or implementation of community public spaces for gardening or the development / enhancement of parks, street tree beds, waterfronts or other green spaces for public use.
Also includes projects which promote community conservation such as rainwater / flood control, composting, recycling and the prevention of soil erosion.
Since the creation of CIBP our work has expanded from the primary 50k residents' community of Coney Island to include secondary as well as tertiary neighborhoods.
Because of our outreach to citywide educational organizations and the expertise of our members, CIBP has become an in-demand organization,
In the short year of our existence we have elected a govering body which includes an Executive Board and a Steering Committee. We are incorporated as a New York State not for profit corporation.
