Your Neighborhood Needs You!Please join Voice Of Gowanus tomorrow morning at 9 AM on the Carroll Street Bridge for a press conference to express concerns about the proposed Gowanus Rezoning. Now is the time to act and to tell our elected officials that no new residents should be put in harms way in Gowanus.
Let's demand that the canal be remediated first and that New York City stop using it as an open sewer!
Voice of Gowanus Press Conference
New Coalition to Preview Gowanus Rezoning Concerns
With less than a week to go before comments are due on the draft Environmental Impact Study for the proposed Gowanus Rezoning, Voice of Gowanus member organizations and supporters will share a variety of concerns regarding the proposed rezoning.
Voice of Gowanus is deeply concerned about massive rezoning-induced development occurring before the Gowanus Canal’s environmental contamination is remediated. The coalition is also seriously concerned about the inadequacy of neighborhood infrastructure (transit, schools, sewage) in the face of a massive influx of additional residents. The proposed rezoning’s misplaced density and greenwashing also raise serious concerns.

We hope to see you tomorrow!
