Tonight, Community Board 2’s Economic Development committee will meet at 6 pm at Long Island University’s Jonas Board Room (DeKalb Avenue at Flatbush Avenue Extension). The executive directors of two local business improvement districts — Kate Kerrigan of DUMBO and Blaise Backer from Myrtle Avenue — will present their offices and what kinds of services they offer their respective communities.
Tomorrow night, on April 1, the Health, Environment and Social Services committee will meet at 6 pm at Brooklyn Hospital, conference rooms A and B (DeKalb Avenue, at St. Felix Street). A representative from Queens City Councilman James Gennaro’s office will present the councilman’s bill before City Council to prohibit drilling for natural gas in the city’s drinking water supply watershed. Gennaro is fighting for the bill, and is looking for a letter of support from the Community Board. Click here for a story from ProPublica for more context about the bill.
Armando’s will also apply for its new liquor license, in preparation for owner Peter Byros’s great return to 143 Montague St., sometime this summer. A new venue, Linger Lounge, which will be at 533 Atlantic Ave., will also apply for a beer and wine license.
