The City Parks Foundation is managing a process for communities to select projects to receive funding from a $7 million Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant mitigation fund. There are 22 projects on the list. When you vote, you will be able to rank your top 5 choices. This process will result in a clear list of community preferences. The final decisions will be made by NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.
