Central Islip Civic Council

We make Central Islip a better place to live.


The Central Islip Civic Council has built over 450 new homes for first-time home buyers. From 2-bedroom town homes to 4 bedroom single-family homes, the Council is a leader in providing creative, affordable housing solutions.

The Council acquired a vacant property in the Lowell Ave neighborhood in 2014 and will build a beautiful new home in 2016 for a lower income family. (Since 1985, the Council has built 50 new affordable homes in Central Islip, as well as 380 new College Woods homes in partnership with the Town of Islip Community Development Agency.) The last affordable homes the Council did with the CDA were two on Peters street, Irving St, Ferndale Blvd., Elmore St, Bridger and Pineview.
