TONIGHT! Red Hook Innovations: Design Proposals and Big Thinking

Tonight, Monday November 25th, at 6:30pm at PS15, the New York Rising Planning Committee will host a forum where some "big ideas" regarding resiliency in Red Hook will be presented. As the planning committee co-chairs write -

"The evening will include a series of presentations by designers from around the city who are pushing the envelope and taking resiliency from concept to design. Presenters from the HUD Rebuild By Design Competition, Pratt's RAMP program, and Design Relief will each showcase their work focused on Red Hook."

Both BIG and HR&A, who developed plans for the Rebuild By Design competition, will present their ideas for Red Hook. You can view their plans and others at the Rebuild By Design site (HERE). A flyer with all the details is at the bottom of this post.

Second Red Hook-Wide Public Meeting for NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program - 7pm, Nov. 19th, 2013 - ALL WELCOME!

Help Red Hook Strategize for the Future!

The NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program is holding its second Red Hook neighborhood wide meeting on Tuesday November 19th at 7:00, at the PAL Miccio Center (110 W 9th St, Brooklyn, NY 11231) to help shape the future of resiliency in Red Hook.

Please visit this website for more information about the program, project and up to date process -

Over the past several months, this program's committee has taken our community's input and, with the help of our Planning Advisors, has identified and documented the many Needs and Opportunities pertaining to our waterfront community. You can see the final document published here - 

There is the opportunity to provide additional input on this interactive map - - where you can add your detailed ideas on the shape of Red Hook's future.

The next step is to create a set of Strategies, linked to our Needs and Opportunities. These Strategies will lead to specific projects to help us reach our resilient community goals. Identifying these Strategies is critical to laying the foundation.

We need your voice and input.

The event on November 19th will be a series of round table discussions so we can talk, neighbor to neighbor about our visions, ideas, and consider our neighborhood's future reconstruction.

Please come along!

Second public meeting on November 19th from 7:00 – 8:30pm at the PAL Miccio - 110 W 9th St, Brooklyn, NY 11231
