Bridging Gowanus Community Planning Meeting: 6:00-9:00 Tonight
I have two other meetings this evening and most likely will not be able to attend, but this is an important process and kudos to Brad Lander for re-starting this vital conversation.
City Planning under the Bloomberg administration abandoned the "Gowanus Canal Corridor Framework" (click through for May 2008 slide presentation) study after the NYS DEC referred the Gowanus Canal to EPA for potential superfund designation. Post-Superfund and post-Sandy we need to have an open and frank discussion on the best and most appropriate planning for the Gowanus area.
And tonight's the night for some discussion in that vein. From the invite:
It is also very important for anyone who owns business or property in the neighborhood to attend Bridging Gowanus TONIGHT at
Wyckoff Gardens Community Center
280 Wyckoff Street (Between Nevins and 3rd ave)
