Upcoming: Flatbush 2030 Vision Meeting

December 5th, 2007 · 1 Comment

The “future visioning” effort for Flatbush called Imagine Flatbush 2030 is coming up on Wednesday, December 12 at 6:30 at the Brooklyn College Student Center. The effort is a joint venture of the Flatbush Development Corporation (FDC) and the Municipal Art Society. Sustainable Flatbush describes it as:

a community visioning and dialogue process — designed to get you together with other Flatbush community members to collectively create a more sustainable neighborhood. If you care about the environment, community health, protecting diversity, ensuring affordable housing and a whole host of other community issues, this is the meeting for you!

Given that a lot of Brooklyn communities aren’t planning for 2009, let alone 2030, it’s a very interesting undertaking. (Click on the image above to see it at full size.)

    Hi Bob, and thanks for the mention. However, I can’t take credit for that text, it came straight off the flyer!

    Judging from the first meeting (held last month), Imagine Flatbush looks to be a great way for interested neighbors to meet, exchange ideas and find common ground in working toward a sustainable vision of the neighborhood’s future. Very exciting.
