The BQE workshop held on Oct 26th at PS 67 drew a relatively large attendance of 50 local residents interested in how to best utilize the space under the BQE in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill to meet community needs.
The discussion was led by Pratt Urban Planning students, reports Myrtle Avenue Revitalization Project (MARP), and priorities expressed by residents included “maintaining free and convenient parking for residents,” safety concerns, and ideas for greening the space.
MARP has called for community residents to share ideas for “creative permanent and temporary uses and physical improvements” for this space in the past.
This time Pratt students are doing research and compiling previous proposals, and will return to present their findings to MARP as well as the community sometime after the end of this semester. We presume that will end up being after students return from winter break in January.
