Meeting on Development in Fort Greene Tonight

Fort Greene is right at the top of any list of Brooklyn neighborhood's being deeply impacted by current and future development, and so tonight's meeting on "Development Going Up on the Streets of Fort Greene" is an important one. The session is being sponsored by the Fort Greene Association and will start at 7:30PM, with light refreshments served beforehand at 7:00. It will take place at 85 South Oxford Street, which is between Lafayette and Fulton.

Of particular interest will be remarks by Joe Chan, the President of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership and the so-called "Development Czar" of downtown. Mr. Chan oversees the development within the "Downtown Brooklyn Plan," including the massive projects going up on Flatbush Avenue, those on Fulton Street and Myrtle Avenue and properties within the BAM Cultural District. Newly elected Assembly Member Hakeem Jeffries from the 57th District will also be a special guest speaker.
