Tonight is the final workshop meeting of Imagine Flatbush 2030, the community visioning project created by Municipal Arts Society and Flatbush Development Corporation to “assist in creating neighborhood sustainability goals and tools to measure progress toward consensus-based goals”. As this stage of the project comes to a close (along with, presumably, Municipal Arts Society’s direct involvement), many neighborhood stakeholders (including Sustainable Flatbush) are eager to know how we can participate in working toward the goals that have been discussed in the workshops: preserving and expanding affordable housing, making streets more pedestrian-friendly (especially for children, seniors, and the disabled), establishing indoor and outdoor spaces for community gatherings, supporting locally-owned businesses, promoting a neighborhood arts scene, and more. For those of us who live, work, and study here in Flatbush and have a vested interest in its future, tonight will be our opportunity to establish how we will move forward with this collective vision of neighborhood sustainability.
Tonight’s meeting is at 6pm in the Brooklyn College Student Center, 6th floor, East 27th Street and Campus Road. Childcare is available and refreshments will be served.
