Brooklyn Bridge Park meeting at CB6: Wednesday

The Parks Committee of Community Board 6 will host a public meeting on Wednesday with Regina Myer, the president of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation. According to the CB6 website, the main topic of the meeting will be 'the status of the approved Brooklyn Bridge Park plans including updates on the ongoing site preparation work, projected construction phasing/timetables, and other matters related to the park'.

The meeting will also include a discussion with State Senator Daniel Squadron 'who will be sharing his ideas for how the development of Brooklyn Bridge Park should proceed, including a proposal to change the revenue structure for the park'.

We strongly encourage everyone to attend this meeting. The CHA supports Senator Squadron's alternative revenue model for the park. We believe that it would eliminate forever the need for new housing in the park. Here is our earlier letter in support of his plan.

WHAT: CB6 meeting about Brooklyn Bridge Park
WHEN: Wednesday, May 20 at 6.30 p.m.
WHERE: LICH, 339 Hicks Street, Conference Rooms A and B
