The Cobble Hill Association alerts us to a meeting to be held at City Hall (Manhattan) in the Blue Room, starting at approximately 11:00 a.m. this Wednesday, September 22, at which the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation’s Committee on Alternatives to Housing will consider possible sources of funding for the Park other than the construction of private housing on the Park’s land. According to CHA’s Dave “Paco” Abraham:
This meeting is yet another opportunity for the public to come out and speak out on their desire for a park, a true park… one that does not include private housing within it. The CHA prefers year round recreational facilities such as a pool, ice rink and indoor field house which could offset costs the City cannot [sic] burden.
If you cannot attend the meeting, you may submit comments by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone to 718-222-9939.
