The Department of City Planning will be holding a public meeting tonight, October 12 to discuss the Vision 2020 “Comprehensive” Waterfront Plan. At this meeting, City Planning will give a presentation, which will be followed by an opportunity for public comment.
Sheepshead Bay and Southern Brooklyn must be heard! As we told you last week, the new Vision 2020 plan outlines development priorities along New York City’s waterfront for the next ten years. And all of Southern Brooklyn was snubbed, giving only a vague suggestions of “exploring” the ideas that community leaders have been saying are critical for the sustainability of our neighborhoods. Meanwhile, Manhattan and Northern Brooklyn waterfronts got scores of commitments to build parks, gardens, museums, boat launches, markets and more.
If you can’t make tonight’s meeting, then submit your comments online so that our concerns are clear.
