Last summer we launched Bridging Gowanus, a community planning process to identify broadly-shared goals, discuss diverse viewpoints, and build consensus around a planning framework for the infrastructure and land use regulations needed in the Gowanus Canal area. 

Through the year-long Bridging Gowanus process, hundreds of neighborhood residents (homeowners and tenants), business-owners, environmentalists, artists, affordable housing advocates, and more have come together to consider a wide range of possible futures for Gowanus.

This robust participation has informed the creation of a draft community planning framework, which will be presented on Monday November 24. Following the presentation, there will an opportunity for those in attendance to provide their feedback

The draft community planning framework from the Bridging Gowanus initiative will be presented at an upcoming community meeting. Following the presentation, there will an opportunity for those in attendance to provide feedback.

The framework will be available online in advance of the meeting and—if you can’t make it—comments can be submitted to through the end of the year.
