New DEP Commissioner Strickland To Attend Tonight's Gowanus CAG Meeting

The EPA Gowanus Canal Community Advisory Group will meet at its general meeting tonight, Tuesday, September 27 at PS 58, 330 Smith Street from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
NYC Department of Environmental Protection's Commissioner Carter Strickland will be attending the meeting with members of his staff.
This will be the community's first opportunity to speak to the new Commissioner on his agency's activities as they relate to the Gowanus Canal.
Mayor Bloomberg appointed Strickland as commissioner of NYC DEP in August '11. He was previously DEP's Deputy Commissioner for Sustainability and was a principal architect of Bloomberg's City’s Green Infrastructure Plan.
There will be a question -and-answer period with members of the CAG.

Also on the agenda is a vote on a motion for the CAG to request TASC assistance (Technical Assistance Services for Communities). EPA has received a request from a community member, but has indicated that the formal request must come from the CAG.

As always, the community at large is invited to attend the meeting.
