596 Acres & Rockaway Wildfire Host Open Community Meeting

July 3, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


A sunset view from Rockaway. From http://coastalrealestateny.com

Join 596 Acres and Rockaway Wildfire for a community conversation about how they and you can influence the immediate use and long-term development of vacant public land on Rockaway Peninsula.

596 Acres will give status updates on
– the campaign for enforceable community benefits for Arverne East (81 Acres!),
– the Edgemere Urban Renewal Plan (Bayside),
– public programs at the new Edgemere Farm at Beach 45th Street, and
– organizing for new community spaces in the Edgemere neighborhood on the Bay side by neighbors with the support of 596 Acres.

The group will also start dreaming big: what can be done with all this land that isn’t getting developed quite yet?
– The Team from Trips for Kids (http://www.tfkmetrony.org/) will present a bike park project they helped create in Brooklyn.
– Rockaway’s community growers will describe what to expect when starting new gardens and farms.

596 Acres is following up on some great community visions that were shared as part of the FARROC design competition: http://www.farroc.com/community-design-workshop/

Food at 7pm, meeting starts at 7:30.
