Many Groups, One Cause

Many Groups, One Cause

Over the years, a number of community organizations have taken root in Rockaway. Entities such as the Rockaway Action Committee, the Arverne Civic Association, and the Deerfield Association were formed in order to address serious issues and concerns affecting residents in their designated areas and throughout the peninsula. Many community residents argue that the formation of these groups has fragmented Rockaway, with each specific area having as many as two to three organizations representing it. Although this may indeed be true in some cases, it is important to remember that these organizations were formed, for the most part, for the good of the community. It is our sincere hope that one day all of these groups will come together, under one umbrella, to collectively address the issues in our community.
