Welcome to the Broad Channel Civic Association website!
June's President's Message
This month's Civic meeting will be held on Thursday, June 23rd at 7 PM at the VFW Hall. Come down and get caught up on what is going on in your neighborhood!
This will be the last Civic meeting until September as we break for the Summer recess. We will continue to work on the multiple projects that we have underway in our community and in Jamaica Bay. There is a possibility of a special street raising meeting that may take place in Summer to address Phase 2 - West 14th through West 19th Roads if NYC DDC has the designs completed in July. When that meeting does take place we would urge all residents on the affected blocks to come out and listen to the presentation.
The Army Corps of Engineers Reformulation Study for Jamaica Bay will be out any day now. It will call for a surge barrier (Sea Gate) from Floyd Bennett Field across the bay to Rockaway, in addition to dunes and berms to protect Roxbury and Breezy Point as well as areas of Brooklyn up to Coney Island. The Civic Association has been in contact with the Corps and has been assured that they will hold a public meeting in Broad Channel as part of their outreach. We will notify residents once we get a date and all residents should want to hear the details of this 2.5 billion dollar plan as it will have tremendous long term implications for this town.
Once again we will have Rudy Giuliani from the Build it Back program present to give an update and to answer questions. There have been changes in the program pertaining to the Tishman group .....
