The next meeting of the Manhattan Beach Community Group (MBCG) will be March 19 at 8:00 p.m. inside Public School 195, 131 Irwin Street at Hampton Avenue.

The topic of the meeting will be “Why Manhattan Beach Isn’t Beautiful Anymore,” and will feature a discussion on the destruction by Superstorm Sandy of the neighborhood’s trees. The director of the Brooklyn Parks Department of Forestry Unit will address the issues of tree stumps, removal of trees, tree replacements, and when the trees will be replaced.

Also included on the agenda will be an update of how much of the almost 20 million dollars of NY Rising monies may be allotted to Manhattan Beach.

The MBCG encourages members of the community to attend and participate in their monthly civic meetings. For more, contact MBCG at (718) 200-1845 or manhattanbeachbrooklyn.org@gmail.com, or visit www.manhattanbeachbrooklyn.org.
