Greenfield Invites Residents & Businesses to Clean Up Bay Parkway
Public Welcome to Attend Meeting on Thursday with DSNY Officials
Brooklyn, NY – In response to a host of quality of life issues and concerns along Bay Parkway, Councilman David G. Greenfield is hosting a town hall meeting on Thursday in Bensonhurst in partnership with the Brooklyn Federation of Italian American Organizations and the United Chinese Association of Brooklyn. Officials from the city Department of Sanitation will be on hand to answer questions, discuss specific concerns and devise strategies to combat the issues along Bay Parkway moving forward. In recent months, Greenfield has received numerous complaints from residents and business owners regarding issues such as large trucks and commercial vehicles parked on the street overnight, trash and debris illegally dumped along the sidewalk on a regular basis and more.
“Through my partnership with these great organizations, the residents of Bensonhurst and the New York City Department of Sanitation, I am confident that we can make substantial improvements to that stretch of Bay Parkway and hopefully eliminate many of these longstanding issues for good. Residents deserve city streets, especially major thoroughfares like Bay Parkway, to be clean and safe, instead of being used as a commercial truck stop and dumping ground. The current situation is unacceptable, and I will work with the community until the situation is rectified,” said Greenfield.
All residents are invited to attend Thursday’s meeting at St. Athanasius School auditorium, 6120 Bay Parkway, starting at 6 p.m. Anyone who is unable to attend but has concerns or suggestions concerning Bay Parkway is invited to call Greenfield’s district office at (718) 853-2704 to provide input.
City Councilman David G. Greenfield represents Council District 44, which includes Borough Park, as well as parts of Midwood and Bensonhurst.
