The Gowanus Canal Community Development Corporation is holding a get together tonight to showcase the comprehensive plan in its current iteration for the Big G and environs. The group has been developing a plan that emphasizes public access to the Gowanus and dreams of a “green” neighborhood with environmentally-friendly projects. The group’s chair says that the plan is especially important because time is running out to try to superimpose a plan before development simply happens. The planning process has been funded with nearly $250,000 arranged by Rep. Nydia Velazquez.

The GCCDC is expecting elected officials, community groups and residents at the meeting, which takes place tonight (June 29) at 7:00PM in St. Agnes Parish Hall, which is located at 433 Sackett Street between Hoyt and Bond.
