From Brad Lander:
Mayor Bill de Blasio is traveling through Brooklyn this week as part of his “City Hall in Your Borough” initiative. And already, he’s bringing good news.
Today, after many years of tireless advocacy and step-by-step implementation, we announced that Prospect Park will officially be car-free. Our refuge in the heart of Brooklyn is now safer and more peaceful for all the joggers, cyclists, seniors, and families who love Prospect Park (and maybe the dogs, horses, squirrels -- and I guess maybe even cows, too).
Want to hear what other good news the Mayor is planning for our neighborhoods? Join us on Thursday night for a Town Hall with Mayor Bill de Blasio
This event will be a chance for us to have an open dialogue with the Mayor and his chance to share with us what he’s working on in our neighborhoods. So I hope you’ll join us this Thursday.
Thursday, October 26th, 2017
Doors Open 6:30 PM
Event Begins at 7:30 PM
MS 51, William Alexander Middle School, 350 5th Avenue
RSVP here before October 25th at 5 PM (and please note that it’s first come, first served at the door)
In addition to the Mayor, we’ll be joined by commissioners and senior staff from many City agencies. You’ll be able to ask about issues ranging from public transit, housing affordability, integrating our schools, plan for the future of Gowanus, and so much more.
The Town Hall is open to residents of the 39th District, which includes the neighborhoods of Cobble Hill, Columbia Waterfront, Carroll Gardens, Gowanus, Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, Kensington, and Borough Park ( map here.)
