Yaphank Civic Association was founded by Johan McConnell in 2004 and has, in a relatively short period of time, addressed much of the area's concerns and has established itself as a professional, articulate and factual organization earning the respect and admiration of many in local and county government as well as of other civic and community organizations.
OUR mission is to provide residents of Yaphank and Brookhaven hamlets with a forum to address issues of concern to our community.
We advocate for residentsí input in all decisions affecting our community, to ensure the safety of our neighborhood, to enhance area property values as well as to encourage positive and strategic development of the area where appropriate and beneficial.
Our goal is to help to promote and
preserve the historic community of Yaphank.
We work to provide timely communication of important
information and facts between community members,
other civic organizations or agencies and the
elected and appointed decision makers of
Brookhaven Township and Suffolk County.
