Brooklyn Bridge Park Revenue Meeting Tonight (Tuesday, Nov. 30)

All members of the public are encouraged to attend and testify on alternative sources of revenue that could finance the operations of Brooklyn Bridge Park in lieu of revenues from the Pier 6 and John Street development sites:

Tuesday, November 30, 6pm - 8pm
Long Island College Hospital, 339 Hicks Street
Avram Conference Center, 1st floor

Thursday, December 9, 6pm - 8pm
St. Francis College, 180 Remsen Street,
Founders Hall Auditorium, 1st floor

According to the Cobble Hill Association, a recent proposal offered by community members to negotiate a deal with the Jehovah Witnesses to develop their soon-to-be-abandoned buildings close to the park, for the benefit of park financing is gaining traction. Other park funding models, including Senator Squadron's park increment recapture proposal (named the PIRC plan) also offer relief from the condos plan.
