The Gowanus Canal Community Advisory Group’s Admin Committee met via Zoom conference on Tuesday, November 23rd, at 10:00 a.m.
Committee members attending:
Discussed survey results which show no representation for the NYCHA houses nor representation for the wider Red Hook Community. Suggesting that Outreach make attempts to seek more participation; also suggesting that perhaps CAG member George Fiala could help get the word out in the community as well.
Some members did not list a committee affiliation. These include:
Nathan Elbogen/Ariel Krasnow – The Old American Can Factory
These members should choose a committee and attend two meetings in a row to establish membership.
Two members have not responded to repeated requests to complete the survey:
Diane Buxbaum (At-Large) indicated verbally that she still wishes to serve and lists her committees as Archaeology and Water Quality.
Admin suggests removal of Ms. Jones and Mr. Song and will seek general CAG approval.
Admin also suggests that Doug clean up the CAG MEMBERS email list to include only active members.
Former members can be left on the wider contact list.
For next year, perhaps Doug could send out a notice to CAG members that a survey will be coming to them and to look out for it and respond.
