Understanding that the proposed Gowanus Rezoning is approaching a NYC procedural land use review, called a ULURP, we the undersigned Carroll Gardens, Gowanus, Red Hook, Cobble Hill and Park Slope residents and property owners wish to:

Join CORD's call for a minimum of two (2) inter-agency panel town hall Q&A discussions on the rezoning of the Gowanus Canal to be organized and held by Community Board 6, so that the community can assess for itself if the City has the means, the resources and the will to TRULY plan for the impact of about 8,200 new housing units and an estimated 19,000 new residents. In order to give the community and the Community Board Members the time to absorb and assess all of the potential consequences of this rezoning, these meetings must be organized and held to take place well before the ULURP comes before the CB6 Land Use Committee for approval.

**A list of NYC agencies we think should be at our town hall include:

  1. FDNY Fire Department
  2. NYPD Police Department
  3. OEM . Office of Emergency Management
  4. EMT SERVICES Emergency Medical Personnel
  5. DSNY Sanitation Department
  6. DOE Education Department
  7. DOT Transportation and Traffic Department
  8. NYCT NYC Transit (All)
  9. DCP City Planning Department
  10. DEP NYC Environmental Protection (air, water, sewage)
  11. EPA Region 2 . US Dept of Environmental Protection (our Superfund team)
  12. PARKS Parks Department
  13. DEC, NY State Department of Environmental Conservation (brownfields including Public Place)
  14. MTA and Metropolitan Transit Authority (subways along with NYCT)
  15. FEMA Federal Emergency Department (flooding, natural disasters)
