Columbia Waterfront Park Visioning Meeting

This just in from the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative:
Join the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative, Regional Plan Association and your neighbors as we begin the visioning for a new public open space on Columbia Street between Kane and Degraw Streets.

When the Van Brunt Street reconstruction and the Gowanus Flushing Tunnel construction are complete, an 80-foot deep area on the west side of Columbia Street is planned to become an open space element of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. It is one of three open space nodes that we are either designing or commencing the community visioning process.

On February 2nd, we will share the background research that has been compiled to date and invite you to share your ideas for the kinds of improvements and facilities that would be most beneficial to the Columbia Waterfront community.

The meeting details are:

What: Columbia Waterfront Park Visioning Meeting
When: Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Where: The Union Street Star Theater, 101 Union Street

Please RSVP to with Columbia Waterfront Park in the subject line. We will send you a link to background information to help prepare you for the discussion on February 2nd.

Planning for the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway is made possible by the New York State Department of State with funds provided under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund sponsored by the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President.

  1. I think an essential 1st step in his direction is for American Stevadore and the city to reach an agreement to NOT store anymore road salt at Pier 9 at the end of Kane St. I spoke with Assemblywoman Millman and State Senator Squadron in November and they had still not received a commitment from American Stevadore. Please contact the elected officials below to keep the heat on this important health issue.
