A friend received this letter from Ellen Whelan-Wuest, the Brooklyn Office Director for State Senator Daniel Squadron:
"On Sunday, April 5, State Senator Daniel Squadron will host another public meeting to present his plan for how to make Brooklyn Bridge Park a real, world-class park for our community and our city.
Please join us for the presentation, which will be followed by a Q&A session with Senator Squadron about his proposal.
The meeting will be held at 3:00 pm, Sunday April 5, in the Avram Conference Center, Conference Room A at Long Island College Hospital."
Squadron, who ran against housing in Brooklyn Bridge Park, hopes to divert a portion of property tax revenue from nearby neighborhoods (DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights) to pay for the park's yearly costs rather than having development within the park.
