Reminders: Hear the latest on the East River Park reconstruction at this CB3 committee meeting
As a reminder: Tomorrow (Jan. 16) night, CB3's Parks, Recreation, Waterfront, & Resiliency Committee will receive an update on the East River Park rebuild from officials at the Department of Design and Construction.
That committee meeting, which is open to the public, starts at 6:30 p.m. in the BRC Senior Services Center, 30 Delancey St. between Chrystie and Forsyth.
This past Nov. 14, City Council signed off on the hotly contested plan that will bury/elevate East River Park by eight feet as part of the East Side Coastal Resiliency Project. The phased-in construction is expected to begin in the spring. (A coalition of community groups who oppose the plan is expected to file a lawsuit. Read about that here.)
Also as previously reported: There's a petition in circulation to help save the Lower East Side Ecology Center's community compost program. You find the petition at this link.
