This coming Monday, Senator Squadron will be hosting a meeting to give the community an opportunity to hear a presentation from the City of New York about Brooklyn Bridge Park.
BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK TOWN HALL MEETING Hosted by State Senator Daniel Squadron WHEN: Monday, December 7, 7:00 pm WHERE: Long Island College Hospital, Conference Rooms C & D (Corner of Hicks and Atlantic Avenue, enter on Hicks Street)
Since the 1985 the Cobble Hill Association has worked to create a great park to honor the Brooklyn Bridge and to serve the growing population of young families with year round recreational facilities, welcoming entrances, access along its length, and a financial plan that does not privatize public parks with housing inside its borders.
Mayor Bloomberg now wants the State to give him control of the Park.
Please come to a meeting at which the Mayor's plan will be presented: This Monday, December 7th at 7 PM at Long Island College Hospital.
Please ask the Mayor:
1. Will he eliminate new housing that has been shown to be unnecessary and corrosive to this park?
2. Will he put back the recreational facilities taken out in favor of landscaping for condos?
3. Will he support Senator Squadron's plan for financing, or other plans we have put forth over the years to support this park's operations?
We apologize for the delay in notifying you about this meeting. It is the mayor's timing, not ours. But this is an important meeting and do hope you will be able to attend!
