Our mission is to promote and improve the health, safety, recreation and well being of the East Village neighborhood, to enhance and foster a sense of community by keeping residents, businesses and stakeholders connected to the latest issues affecting the East Village, conducting research, promoting sustainability, protecting our built environment and supporting local creativity. 

Our neighborhood tells a unique story of struggle, labor, community, counterculture, arts and activism through its low-rise, high-density form, lively streetscape and diverse population. By defending the scale and character of the East Village, we protect a legacy held dear by its residents as well as the descendants of many American immigrants who return to revisit their roots.

Our key initiatives include Community Engagement, Retail Diversity, Neighborhood Preservation and Sustainability.

We hope you’ll Get Involved in the work that EVCC does!
