Host: Trinity Lutheran Church, Co-sponsored by UPROSE
Workshop date: April 24, 2013
Residents attended to provide on-the-ground insight that helped our Community Rebuilding and Resiliency Team develop a deeper understanding of the priorities and challenges of Sunset Park.
We received hundreds of comments, but several collective priorities clearly emerged:
- The importance of mitigating flooding of industrial buildings to protect against spillage of hazardous materials;
- The importance of improving communication and protocol around disaster preparedness and recovery; and
- The importance of creating more green infrastructure (to aid water run-off and absorb storm impacts) and:
- Add more community rain barrels, more green roofs; and
- Revitalize brownfields.
