Hope to see everyone this weekend!
Red Hook NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program
Realty Collective, 351 Van Brunt St
11am – 6pm on Saturday, February 22nd and Sunday, February 23rd
The Committee held its 11th meeting on Monday, February 10th in which we discussed benefits, feasibility, and considerations of possible priority resiliency projects.
· Youth from the Red Hook Initiative/South Brooklyn Community High School film production program completed a video documenting the November 19th Public Engagement at the Miccio Center. This will be featured at the public meeting as well.
· On December 18th, the Red Hook Planning Committee partnered with Good Shepherd’s Services at the Beacon Center to engage teens in the NY Rising program. At this event, teens brainstormed with planners and Committee representatives about resiliency challenges and solutions for Red Hook.
· The Committee applauds the incredible news from Governor Cuomo’s Office of a $200M New York City & New York State combined commitment for the development of an integrated floodwall in Red Hook. This announcement provides great momentum to our work and is proof that Red Hook can and will become a more resilient community.
