Community input needed for BQE enhancement study!

The Columbia Waterfront Neighborhood Association (COWNA) has announced that the EDC will soon release details about their choice for a consultant to conduct the BQE Enhancement Study (aka Fix the Ditch).

In preparation for the likely public participation meetings, COWNA would like community members to provide input on the topic through a simple online survey.

Here is the email that COWNA sent out:

The NYC Economic Development Corporation will soon announce the selection of a consultant to perform the Brooklyn Queens Expressway enhancement study. In order to prepare for participation in the public meetings that will be conducted during the study, we would like to gather opinion from Columbia Waterfront residents. Having a sense of the neighborhood's feelings about potential alterations to the BQE will enable us to effectively represent the community for the study. You can access the study here:

There are 9 questions, the study is anonymous and it should take only a few minutes to complete. We plan on incorporating the results of this survey into the discussion at our upcoming General Meeting on December 7th.

This process can have major implications for the future of the neighborhood so please participate!
