Do you have an opinion about what our waterfront should look like in 10 or 20 years time? Are you interested in the plans for the Revere Sugar site, the Atlantic Basin or the Brooklyn waterfront in general? Do you have a vision for Red Hook's waterfront and wish you had a chance to put in your "2 cents' worth"?
Well here's your opportunity (both in person and on-line) -
This from the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance (MWA) -
You can have your say regarding the future of our waterfront during this first meeting convened by the City's Department of Planning regarding the update of their 1992 Comprehensive Waterfront Plan, which they're calling Vision 2020. From the City's web site (here) -
The MWA is saying that the City has "committed to extensive public involvement to identify the goals and issues to be addressed by the Plan" and that following this initial meeting there will be follow-up meetings in the individual boroughs that will focus on their particular needs (so stay tuned), but this first meeting will surely be a chance to participate in the process from the beginning.
Can't make this meeting? The MWA says this -
So make your voices heard. As the MWA states,
"This is our opportunity to ensure important improvements continue in ways that balance many important waterfront needs."
