CG CORD Newsletter 9/05/2013
Meet the Candidates:
"Carroll Gardens CORD/Coalition for Respectful Development has three questions for Mr. DeBlasio and ALL the NYC mayoral candidates:
Q. Will you, as the next NYC mayor, comply completely without opposition to whatever the final EPA record of decision demands regarding the Gowanus Canal clean-up in Brooklyn? Specifically, will you agree to finance the retention tanks in the locations currently proposed by the EPA?
Q. Who among you will be brave enough to scrap the idea of high density housing on the spectacularly compromised/ environmentally hazardous Public Place site and return it to the NYC Parks Department for our green space use as was originally intended and is certainly more environmentally appropriate and safer health-wise for all??
Q. Who among you disagrees with the plan to place housing in the flood zone A along the Gowanus Canal, a zone that suffered immense flooding all the way to Bond Street during Hurricane Sandy 2012, more flooding during the Hurricane of 2011, AND what is now referred to as the "Poo Poo Tsunami" or massive untreated sewage wave surge after the tornado of 2010? In other words who among you is in disagreement with placing brand new housing and unsuspecting new residents in the path of the next toxic storm surge?
We look forward to your responses at
