Speak up for Fowler Square Tuesday Night
Come out on Tuesday night, March 2oth, to support the creation of a new pedestrian plaza in Fort Greene. Opposition to this plan is small, but vocal, and the community needs your support to make it happen.
In response to community feedback, DOT is proposing a temporary plaza in the summer of 2012 to test the closure of South Elliot Place between Fulton Street and Lafayette Avenue. Enhancements may include a gravel surface treatment, moveable tables and chairs and other informal seating, benches, planters as well as more in-ground plants/flowers, umbrellas, additional lighting, repairs to damaged sidewalk within Fowler Square triangle, and public art. DOT will monitor the temporary closure, re-evaluate the proposal with community input, and present findings to Community Board 2. The meeting will take place at St. Francis College, 180 Remsen St.
The meeting begins at 6:oo PM. It’s imperative that rational, calm voices speak up to support this plaza so that Fort Greene can get a little extra green space.
