Upcoming: Williamsburg/Greenpoint "Protest for Parks"
There's going to be a "Town Hall" meeting sponsored by the Greenpoint Waterfront Assocation for Parks & Planning at Warsaw on January 17 at 7PM (261 Driggs Ave.). The email we got says:
The neighborhoods of Greenpoint/Williamsburg are at a point of crisis and opportunity. Crisis because rampant development threatens what little open space and parks we have. Promises of additional open space made in the 2005 rezoning have never materialized. However, opportunities abound. We have promises made for terrific park facilities all over the neighborhood. We just have to make it happen....This month, GWAPP will host a Town Hall meeting to update the community on parks and rezoning in the neighborhood. We’ll also update you on the TGE power plant fight (no, folks it ain’t over yet).More information on the group is available by clicking here. [Click on the image to see it a readable size.]
