Envisioning Bushwick Inlet Park I – A 21st Century Park for Greenpoint and Williamsburg
January 24, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Following Mayor de Blasio’s announcement of funding for two new stages of development at Bushwick Inlet Park, NYC Parks is planning hearings in 2018 to set the future of the 50 Kent Ave and Motiva parcels at BIP. To help plan for that, FBIP presents a series of community seminars on the history of BIP’s planning and current trends in park, waterfront and open space design. They are not scoping meetings to determine the makeup of the park. Rather they are meant to be educational and creative tools tools to serve to inform those meetings that will be held by NYC Parks & Recreation later this year.

Underpinning each program theme are three design principles to explore:
- World-class, 21st Century, resilient design.
- A comprehensive master plan for the 27 acres (versus piecemeal, stand-alone designs)
- Retain the general balance/mix of active and passive spaces of the 2005 Master Plan
