Final Gowanus Canal CAG Organizational Members
Final Gowanus Canal CAG Members At-Large
The final member list for the first Gowanus Canal Superfund Community Advisory Group (CAG) has just been released by Jeffrey Edelstein of Edelstein Associates who was chosen in May by the Carroll Gardens/ Gowanus Canal Area residents as a Neutral Facilitator. After meeting with neighborhood organizations and individuals who wished to be on the CAG and after addressing comments from the public, Edelstein has come up with a group that is representative of the community.
A Superfund Community Advisory Group is designed to serve as the focal point for the exchange of information among the local community and EPA, the State regulatory agency, and other pertinent Federal agencies involved in cleanup of the Superfund site. As its facilitator, Mr. Edelstein will serve as a representative for the CAG and will help its members understand the technical and scientific information put forth by the EPA.
A first meeting has been scheduled facilitator Edelstein for:
Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2010
from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.
at the Old American Can Factory, 232 Third Street.
The meeting is open to the public.
The meeting room will be open at 6:15 p.m. (with snacks and beverages) to provide the opportunity for informal discussion and to meet other CAG members. Please find the draft agenda below.
