The Brooklyn Bridge Park Community Advisory Council held its first meeting recently at St. Francis College. The 25-member council passed two resolutions during the meeting.
The first involved adding a new member to the council. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported the President of the Atlantic Avenue Betterment Association (AABA) arrived at the meeting under the assumption they were a member.
The council passed a resolution to add the president of the AABA to the council.
The second involved the Requests for Proposals (RFP) for the use and development of the Tobacco Warehouse. The Brooklyn Heights Association, the Fulton Ferry Landing Association, the DUMBO Neighborhood Alliance, and the Vinegar Hill Association all originally called for the withdrawal of the RFP. This request was rejected. And since then several proposals have filtered in.
The neighborhood associations called for transparency with the proposal process and for the respondents to be made public.
