Meeting: Put in Your Two Cents About How to Use Brooklyn Bridge Park

How should Brooklyn Bridge Park be used? Do you have ideas about recreation or cultural programming? Transportation or access? Landscape design?

The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy and other involved organizations are holding an "input" meeting on Monday, November 26, from 6:30-9:00 pm at Congregation Mt Sinai, 250 Cadman Plaza West, in Brooklyn Heights.

The future 85-acre park will stretch 1.3 miles along the East River from north of the Manhattan Bridge to Atlantic Avenue.

See here for an overview of the park plan. See here for FAQs.

A Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy release says: "In addition to a general statement of goals and major recommendations, the final Strategic Plan will include suggestions for potential partnership arrangements and strategies, recommendations for interim uses during park construction, general recommendations for types of major facilities, infrastructure recommendations, a timeline for implementation of programs and construction of facilities and venues, and a financial plan for self-sustaining programming which carefully balances public and private uses."

Their web site also had a form where you can share your ideas here.
