Sunset Park Brownfield Hybrid Bus Tour

Get on the hybrid bus!

On Thursday,June 17, 4 - 6 p.m. a Sunset Park Brownfield Tour will be highlighting the work that UPROSE is doing with the Brownfield Opportunity Areas program.

Brownfield is land previously used for industrial purposes that may be contaminated by hazardous waste or pollution, and has the potential to be reused once it is cleaned up. This tour will show UPROSE's brownfield priority sites and will talk about the community's vision and comprehensive plan for remediation and redevelopment strategies.

UPROSE is dedicated to the development of Southwest Brooklyn and the empowerment of its residents primarily through broad and converging environmental, sustainable development, and youth justice campaigns. Founded in 1966, UPROSE is Brooklyn’s oldest Latino community-based organization.
