Prepare Your Public Comment! Newtown Creek (snowy) Winter Bike Tour Tomorrow

Hey all, tomorrow (Sunday, Dec 20) we will be doing a reprise of our Newtown Creek history bike tour in order to give you a crash education on our neighborhood’s most notorious toxic site. Led by Ryan Kuonen, this tour will give you some context for the current controversy surrounding the Creek’s potential federal Superfund status. We’re meeting at 10 am at the NAG office, 110 Kent Street right next to East River Park (N.8 St) This is written as a bike tour, so please take good precautions! Wear warm clothes and a helmet since it will be snowy and possibly slippery.

The gov. is accepting public comments regarding the Superfund status up until Dec 23rd– that’s soon! So hopefully we’ll see you tomorrow, full of warm coffee and ready to learn! Then afterwards you can head indoors to your computers and share your thoughts re: Superfund status.
