Community Listening Sessions

From NYC H2O:

Ridgewood Reservoir
Community Meetings
Tuesday May 23 @ 7pm: PS 68, 5909 St Felix Ave, Glendale
Thursday June 1 @ 7pm: North Brooklyn YMCA, 570 Jamaica Ave, Brooklyn

Join us for a community listening session to envision an exciting new future for Highland Park's historic Ridgewood Reservoir. NYC H2O and its collaborating organizations are actively seeking input from community members to discuss future possibilities as well as address present challenges around the Reservoir. NYC Parks has worked with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to reclassify the Ridgewood Reservoir to Class A "Low Hazard," a new designation that allows it to be preserved as a natural and cultural treasure for the community.

These meetings are being organized by NYC H2O with the following community organizations: Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation; East New York Farms; North Brooklyn YMCA; Highland Park Ridgewood Reservoir Association; Community Board 5 Queens and Community Board 5 Brooklyn; 75th and 104th Precincts; Queens Borough President’s Office; Brooklyn Borough President's Office; Brooklyn Bird Club; Queens County Bird Club; NYC Audubon, along with New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

RSVP for 5/23 at 7pm at PS 68

RSVP for 6/1 at 7pm at N Brooklyn YMCA
