Upcoming: Brooklyn Bridge Park Community Meeting

May 4th, 2008 · No Comments

There’s a meeting about Brooklyn Bridge Park tomorrow (May 5). Per an email from the Brooklyn Bridge Park Defense Fund:

There is an important meeting 5/5 regarding Brooklyn Bridge Park’s inclusion of Pier 6 in the plan for the new park. Pier 6 was not part of the original plan and therefore did not receive the benefit of community input. It is extremely important that we register our desires regarding the uses of this portion of the park…Under the sponsorship of Atlantic Avenue Betterment Association (AABA), in collaboration with the Sierra Club, the Cobble Hill Association, the Willowtown Association, Brooklyn Vision and the Brooklyn Bridge Park Defense Fund, Fred Kent, Kathy Madden and Ethan Kent of the world renowned public planning firm, Project for Public Spaces, will present the findings from the February Pier 6 Planning Meeting. Included will be ideas for an eco-friendly ferry terminal and many activities long-sought by local residents…We encourage everyone to attend to show your support for a real park and an active waterfront – and not the private residential enclave it is destined to become! Refreshments will be served and baby sitting provided, free of charge.

The meeting is at 7PM at Long Island College Hospital. (Atlantic Ave. at Hicks Street, Public meeting rooms B & C.)
