Brooklyn Greenway: Columbia Connector workshop 4/26/11

Columbia Connector Workshop
Tuesday, April 26th

Red Hook Recreation Center
155 Bay Street

RSVP to 718.522.0193 or with Columbia Connector in the subject line. BGI will send background information to prepare you for the April 26th workshop.

The objective of the Columbia Street Connector Project is to improve the pedestrian experience between the Red Hook Houses, Columbia Street Esplanade, Red Hook Park and the route of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. This stretch of Columbia Street has low traffic and wide sidewalks. The land uses in the northern three blocks are mostly industrial and commercial and the pedestrian experience could be improved significantly with vegetation and plantings. The esplanade itself could also become a more attractive destination with some trees and landscaping.

Because this is an important junction with the greenway, Brooklyn Greenway Initiative and Regional Plan Association seek the Red Hook community’s ideas on what improvements would be desirable to make this an attractive route and destination for Red Hook residents. We will work with you to get the plan implemented.

Planning for the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway is made possible by the New York State Department of State with funds provided under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund sponsored by the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President.
Additional funding for this public workshop provided by Partnerships for Parks.
