TOMORROW: Community Board 1 Land Use Meeting, A Superfund Update & D.O.T. Forum

Follows are no less than three community forums for your consideration, north Brooklynites!

First up, tomorrow our Community Board’s Land Use Committee will be getting down to business. I have highlighted two items which may— should— be of interest to my fellow Greenpointers:

  • The folks from 259 Banker Street will be on hand to present their plans for this property (HINT/SPOILER: it will NOT be a nightclub. It will be an artists’ studio.). I myself have seen the plans for this and have to confess: they’re very nice!
  • Discussion about the proposed expansion of the Greenpoint Historic District (something about which yours truly feels rather strongly) will resume as well.

Secondly, the EPA will be conducting not one— but TWO— public information sessions about the progress they are making Superfunding creek. Without further ado, here’s the 411:

EPA Information Sessions Regarding The Superfunding of Newtown Creek

Lastly, the Department of Transportation will be conducting a public forum regarding proposed changes to West Street as part of the greater Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway Project. Believe it or not, this was a rather contentious issue at the last Transportation Committee meeting I attended (for very salient reasons, I’ll add). “Refreshments” (beer, perhaps?)  will be served!
