Gowanus Lounge: Serving Brooklyn

Upcoming: Talk About Gowanus by the Gowanus

April 23rd, 2008 · No Comments

There’s an interesting sounding meeting that’s being put together in Gowanus on May 7. It will take place on Second Street at the Gowanus Canal from 6:30PM-8:30PM. Per an email that’s been posted by Tom Gray from Council Member Bill de Blasio’s office:

I would like to invite you to be involved in an open discussion with professionals from various New York State and City agencies. The event will focus on the Gownaus Canal corridor that is outlined in the framework developed by the Department of City Planning and the future development of the Public Place site.

Topics can range from transportation, combined sewer overflow, traffic, schools and affordable housing and more. The event will also feature canoe rides by the Gowanus Dredgers…Groups Invited: Department Of Transportation, Metropolitan Transit Authority, Department of Environmental Protection, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, Department of Education, Department of City Planning, Department of Buildings, NYPD, FDNY and NYC Park and Recreation.

Definitely a more interesting location than the standard meeting spots in school auditoriums.
