Columbia Waterfront Park Report-Back Meeting

Join Brooklyn Greenway Initiative, Regional Plan Association, and your neighbors to continue planning for Columbia Waterfront Park — 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, the 80-ft deep area on the west side of Columbia Street is planned to become an open space element of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. At last year’s visioning meeting, ideas were collected from the Columbia Waterfront residents and businesses about what sort of improvements and facilities would be most beneficial to the community.

On January 18th, we will share preliminary renderings for the park design and gather community feedback. The meeting details are:

What:  Columbia Waterfront Park Report-Back Meeting
When:  Wednesday, January 18th, 2012, 6:30-8:30 PM
Where:  The Union Street Star Theater, 101 Union Street

Please RSVP to info@brooklyngreenway.org with Columbia Waterfront Park in the subject line.

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.
