Written comments will be accepted by the lead agency until Friday, January 23, 2009.

The Proposed Action involves several discretionary actions, including zoning changes, city map amendments, special permits, a zoning certification, disposition of City-owned property and project approval and designation of the site as an Urban Development Action Area Project (UDAAP).  In addition, funding may be sought from various federal, state, and local agencies.  The Proposed Action would affect an approximately 5.8-acre site located on the Gowanus Canal in the Gowanus neighborhood , Brooklyn, Community District 6.  The Project Site is located on Block 471, Lots 1 and 100 and is generally bounded by Smith Street to the west, 5th Street to the north, Huntington Street to the south and the Gowanus Canal to the east.
