Stand up for Greenpoint and fill out the Newtown Creek Mitigation Funds Survey!
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is making available $10 million to communities affected by delays constructing the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. Three groups — a State agency called NYSERDA, Hudson River Foundation and City Parks Foundation — will spend these funds after consulting with community groups.
The funds will be spent in the neighborhoods most directly affected by the Plant and can be spent in several different ways. This survey, created by City Parks Foundation, is a chance for you to have input. The deadline is July 14th. Go to http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/newtowncreeksurvey. Do it now!
