The Department of City Planning’s Draft Comprehensive waterfront plan, also known as Vision 2020, is out. That vision, at least with regards to North Brooklyn, reiterates many of the same promises from the 2005 rezoning, including aquisition and development of Bushwick Inlet Park, but there’s also some new stuff for North Brooklyners to get excited about, including support for a waterfront park underneath the Williamsburg Bridge in the space currently occupied by two city agencies – DCAT and DOT. Check out the full report on the City Planning website here. A public hearing on the report is planned for the evening of October 12th.
