Next Thursday, November 8th, NYC Council Member Stephen Levin will hold a community meeting at the Dupont Senior Center (80 Dupont St.) for concerned parents to discuss the proposed site for Greenpoint’s newest K-8 school.
Levin stipulates that this meeting will not focus on the Superfund site so much as on the school itself. He said in a Facebook post: “We would like to meet with Greenpoint parents to discuss the school that will be getting built in the area. We have had several meetings about the Nuhart site but would like to concentrate the school and what people need to know and have questions about regarding the school itself.”
Despite opposition from community groups including North Brooklyn Neighbors (formerly NAG), the proposed location for the school, to be built by developers at Greenpoint Landing, is at the corner of Dupont and Franklin Streets, across from the Nuhart Plastics site, a designated state Superfund.
At the meeting, you can weigh in on issues surrounding the school, and voice your opinion about where it should be built.
