Plumb Beach On Agenda At Tonight’s Civic Meeting

Sheepshead Bay/Plumb Beach Civic Association invited Congressman Anthony Weiner to tonight’s meeting in order to get some answers about the fate of Plumb Beach. While the congressman himself isn’t likely to show, a representative may be dispatched to discuss progress on the issue. Since pounding waves tore away a section of the bike path in the wake of Hurricane Ida – and during more recent storms – little has been done to secure the beach or the particularly vulnerable section of the Belt Parkway. Sandbags were added, and now there is a request to add boulders as support, but beyond that a long-term solution hasn’t moved forward. The inaction is angering many in the community who want to see both the important ecological reserve and the vital transportation infrastructure preserved.

The civic association will also be discussing this year’s Memorial Day parade, scheduled for May 23.

When: Tonight, April 6 @ 7:30 p.m.
Where: Baron DeKalb Knights of Columbus; 3000 Emmons Avenue
