Evergreen North Brooklyn BOA Plan Meeting on Thursday, June 23rd.

On Thursday, June 23rd, come join Evergreen for the second public meeting in our BOA planning process. At this meeting, we will share our findings on the existing conditions of the neighborhood, lessons we have learned from our business roundtables and other outreach, and a look at our vision for an areawide plan of the Industrial Business Zone. We will also share insights on best practices from case studies and present the preliminary approach we are taking to finding strategic sites for revitalization and development opportunities. We want your feedback, so please plan to attend. Food and drinks will be served. You can RSVP to Stephen Fabian at sfabian@evergreenexchange.org or 718-388-7287 x212.
