Steve Gallanter and the History of the Fenway Civic Association

As a 30-year resident of Boston’s East Fenway neighborhood, Steve Gallanter has long made a point of giving back to the community. He presently maintains involvement with the Fenway Community Development Corporation, the Boston Central YMCA, and the Fenway Civic Association (FCA).

The last organization, founded in 1961 by a group of Fenway residents, focuses on improving and maintaining the Fenway neighborhood. During its early years, the FCA undertook beautification, street cleaning, and crime deterrence projects. It has since expanded its purview and, after learning the ins and outs of Boston’s jurisdictional, political, and regulatory processes, has become a civic overseer.

The FCA and groups under its umbrella run regular events in and around Fenway. In the past, its gatherings have included networking meetings, annual meetings, Christmas tree lightings, and park restoration meetings. For more information, or to find out how to get involved, visit FenwayCivic.org.
