Bay Improvement Group Looking For Block Captains To Survey Sandy-Hit Blocks, Assess Current Needs


From the Bay Improvement Group:

We are having a meeting of block captains and those interested in being block captains at Roll & Roaster on Wednesday, 11/27, at 7pm.  Block captains will collect information at the meetings and bring them back to their blocks.  They will also collect information from neighbors about the status of their homes and needs, so that we can either get them supplies or request assistance from elected officials and agencies. (This is NOT a community meeting.  Only block captains and people who may want to be a block captain should attend.)

Also, Councilman Nelson secured a truckload of heaters for Sheepshead Bay residents with no heat.  We’ll distribute those nearby from a truck on the street prior to the meeting.  Exact time TBA.  People should bring ID, a utility bill, or some other way of showing they live in Sheepshead Bay, so that they get to the residents for which they are intended.

  1. Ned, please correct the date–it should be Wednesday, 11/28, at 7pm. Block captains and those interested in being a block captain are encouraged to come to Wednesday’s meeting and go to the community meeting on Thursday. (They can catch the free shuttle on Emmons & Brown at 6:30pm or drive to the Shorefront Y in at 3300 Coney Island Ave and the boardwalk in Coney Island. That meeting starts at 7pm.)
