Folks have been waiting for the completion of this redesign for some time. Heck residents of Clinton Hill around Myrtle Avenue, those who live or work near there or frequent this eyesore of an area have been waiting for ground to break on this project. Now, it appears, their wait is nearing an end.
According to Brooklyn Eagle, “the design phase for the $6 million reconstruction of Myrtle Avenue between Hall and Emerson Streets in Clinton Hill…has officially begun.”
“The city’s engineering and landscape design firm AECOM, will be facilitating a public workshop on Wednesday, Oct. 13,” said M. Blaise Backer, executive director of the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership. Apparently this design team was just named and this will be their first public design workshop.
Folks who are interested in raising their concerns should try and attend this first community design workshop, scheduled from 5:30 7:30 PM in the cafeteria of Benjamin Banneker Academy.
Admission to this first meeting is free but advanced registration is “strongly encouraged,” so a head count can be estimated.
Registration for this event is through “Sarah Farwell at 718-230-1689.” Also call her for more information on future hearings or check out the website at www.myrtleavenue.org.
