UPROSE Community Education Forum

Wednesday, July 23rd at 6:00pm

UPROSE will host a Community Education Forum on Wednesday, June 23rd at 6:00 pm at
UPROSE - 166A 22nd Street between 3rd & 4th Avenues.

Background: In October 2007, US Power Generating Company (USPowerGen) announced they would update the 560-megawatt Gowanus Generating Station located in Sunset Park.

UPROSE and community residents have expressed some concerns regarding the environmental impact on a community already suffering from many adverse environmental influences.

On June 5, UPROSE facilitated a meeting to discuss the possibility of a drafting a MOU (”Memorandum of Understanding”) or incorporating the community’s concerns in the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation permit process for USPowerGen.

USPowerGen has prepared a presentation to address the many questions that were cited at the meeting. USPowerGen has agreed to have all their explanations in laymen’s terms so everyone will be able to understand.

You can RSVP by calling 718.492.9307.
