BK Bridge Park CAC meeting

Tuesday, January 11th @ 6pm is the 2nd meeting of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Community Advisory Council.

Why is such a meeting important?....because this CAC is made of local politicians and community reps working in conjunction with the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corp. The Brooklyn Bridge Development Corp itself will be deciding a crucial issue for our neighborhood - will there be additional housing in our local park?

The Cobble Hill Association stands firmly by the opinion... NO! We want NO additional housing built in the Park and urge the committee to consider any of the many other revenue raising ideas such as potential revenues from the sale of the Watchtower buildings, more concessions, including food and fine dining, and fee-based recreational facilities. A park with housing is simply someone's nice backyard. We want to see a park that is the equal and open backyard for ALL of Brooklyn.
