OUTRAGE Community Meeting on 2/27

by Ryan Watson on

Did you know that more than 40% of New York City’s waste stream passes through North Brooklyn? It’s not difficult to imagine the impact that those kinds of numbers have on our community. From idling truck traffic polluting our air to offensive garbage odors, this is certainly an important environmental issue for the neighborhood.

On Wednesday, February 27 at 6:30pm at St. Frances of Paola Church (219 Conselyea Street; Graham Ave on L), OUTRAGE will focus on these important issues and NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) will give an update on the changes to Kosciuszko Bridge. In addition, NYC DOT representatives will be on-hand to address community concerns about traffic issues in our community.

For more information on getting involved about waste issues in North Brooklyn, visit OUTRAGE Brooklyn for more information on what you can do.
