Help Red Hook Strategize for the Future!

TOMORROW, November 19, 7-8:30pm
New York Rising Community Reconstruction Program at the Miccio Community Center 
(110 West 9th Street between Henry & Clinton St.)

The NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program is helping communities impacted by Superstorm Sandy to rebuild and become more resilient through innovative community-driven plans that consider current damage, future threats to community assets, and the community's economic future. Over the past several months Red Hook's Community Committee has taken the community's input and with the help of our Planning Advisors, have identified and documented the Needs and Opportunities, local to our waterfront community.  You can see the final document published here -

The Event will be a series of round table discussions so we can talk, neighbor to neighbor about our visions, and ideas, and explore our future reconstruction. 

The next step is to create a set of Strategies, linked to our Needs and Opportunities. These Strategies will lead to specific projects to help us reach our resilient community goals. Identifying these Strategies is critical to laying the foundation, and we need your voice and input.
