Assembly Lentol Secures Environmental Bond Act Funds for Land Acquisition
Assemblyman Joe Lentol announced that funds will be included in the Environmental Bond Act that potentially can be used towards acquiring MTA land adjacent to Bushwick Inlet aka 40 Quay St, with the intention for this property to be converted into crucially needed open space. Joe and his staff have been working very hard to find a way to preserve this site. We owe a big round of thanks to him and all the Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park who requested our elected officials act on this. Stay tuned this fall when the EBA will be on the November ballot as a referendum.
