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.
