Gowanus Canal CAG Meeting Tuesday June 24!

Hello from CG CORD!

The scheduled June Gowanus Canal CAG meeting will be held June 24, 6:30 PM at Mary Star of the Sea Apartments at 41 First Street, Brooklyn, NY 11213 (between Hoyt and Bond).

NYC DEP Commissioner Lloyd will be joining the CAG, and we also have resolutions from Water and Technical. 

All are welcome to attend.


With the "Protect Our Homes" petition, CORD was formed in May, 2007. This petition arose as an overwhelmingly negative response to the coming of the over-sized 360 Smith Street Development at the corner of Smith Street and Second Place (Aka Oliver House; aka 131 Second Place). This petition, which had well over three thousand signatures, led to a new zoning text amendment in summer of 2008.
