New York City Council Member Stephen Levin will hold a public meeting to hear feedback from Greenpoint parents on the plans to build a 600-seat elementary school on a vacant lot across the street from the Nuhart Plastics Superfund site (280 Franklin St.), which will be remediated in the next few years after the proposed cleanup plan (PDF) is approved. The meeting will take place on Thursday, Nov. 8, at 7:30 p.m. at the Dupont Senior Center (80 Dupont St.). The school would take around three to five years to complete following approval.
The deadline to submit comments to the Dept. of Environmental Conservation about the proposed cleanup plan is November 19. Council Member Levin and North Brooklyn Neighbors will also host two more comment-athon sessions; an afternoon session at the Dupont Senior Center (80 Dupont St.) from 3 – 5 p.m., and an evening session at Barley (1025 Manhattan Ave.) from 6 – 8 p.m. Polish translation will be available.
