Gowanus Whole Foods Brownfield Cleanup Meeting (Should Clear Things Up . . .)

CB6 sends us this:

On Feb 22, Community Board 6's  Pub Safety/Environmental Protection/Permits/Licenses Committee is hosting a presentation and discussion with representatives of Whole Foods on the resumption of environmental remediation activities at the proposed Whole Foods site.

[Or rather, the site that was once the proposed Whole Foods site, as apparently Whole Foods is planning to clean the site but not build upon the site at the present time. Wait -- they are planning to develop the site. No -- they're not planning to develop the site. Hey -- they don't have a clue.]

That site is 210-230 3rd Street and 370-384 3rd Avenue (southeast corner 3rd Street/3rd Avenue) in Gowanus, Brooklyn.

The event will include a presentation and consideration of a letter of support for an application for a Gowanus Watershed Initiative grant that proposes various Combined Sewer Overflow reduction measures for the Gowanus Canal.

This should clear things up!

Details: PS 32 Auditorium, 317 Hoyt Street (between Union & President Sts), Brooklyn NY 11231, 6:30 p.m.
