Since 1981, CIVITAS has worked to improve quality of life on the Upper East Side and in East Harlem through planning studies, transportation advocacy, zoning reform and promotion of responsible development and a sustainable urban environment

On March 3, 2011 CIVITAS celebrated its 30th Anniversary Benefit at the historic Americas Society.  The August Heckscher Awards for Community Service was presented to two institutions who have made significant contributions to quality of life on the Upper East Side and in East Harlem:

Tony Bechara, Chair, and El Museo del Barrio: As the longtime chair, Tony has overseen the development of El Museo into a standout cultural institution in East Harlem and in New York City. El Museo strikes a balance in cultural programming for diverse ages in its surrounding community and avant-garde art installations.

Paul Buckhurst, Frank Fish and Georges Jacquemart and BFJ Planning: The land use planning and transportation consulting firm is well-respected for its work in New York City and around the world. CIVITAS has worked with principals of BFJ on studies and recommendations related to streetscape improvements to the 96th and 125th Street corridors and to the Second Avenue subway station entrances and mechanical structures.

Previous August Heckscher honorees Bruce Fowle, Founding Principal of FXFOWLE and Susan Henshaw Jones, Director of The Museum of the City of New York presented the 2011 awards.  Honorable Pete and Ainslie Grannis were the event’s honorary chairs.

Benefit Co-Chairs were David Beer, Janis Eltz, Jamie Gibbs, Jeanne McAnaney, Steven Narker, Genie Rice, and Sava Thomas.
