Another Benepe event

It appears that Commissioner Benepe is on a public relations campaign, plugging his PlaNYC 2030 initiative, which includes, for all intents and purposes, the destruction of the Ridgewood Reservoir habitats.

Here is an announcement of his next event. We need a good turn out, if you can, please attend and ask him the difficult questions. This is from the New York City Audubon Society website:

November Lecture Wednesday, November 14th, at 6pm

Adrian Benepe has worked for the last 28 years protecting and enhancing New York City's natural and historic beauty. Since his appointment as Commissioner of the Department of Parks & Recreation by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg on January 25, 2002, he has focused on improving park facilities and programs for children and developing new waterfront parks and greenways. Commissioner Benepe will discuss how currently, New York City’s parks are undergoing a renewed period of transformation and expansion. The Department of Parks and Recreation is managing the biggest capital investment in New York City’s parks since the 1930s. Thanks to Mayor Bloomberg's PlaNYC initiative, Parks is receiving an additional $1.2 billion to expand active recreation and for greening initiatives. Commissioner Benepe will explain these projects and discuss their role in creating a greener, more sustainable city.

The November lecture will be held at Helen Mills Theatre, 137-139 West 26th Street. All lectures are open to the public free of charge.
