Review of Outstanding Action Items

The full CAG approved all four requests put forth by the Outreach Committee at the April general meeting:
- Reactivation of the CAG Google Group (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/gowanuscag or email@example.com).
- Establishment of a CAG Twitter account (@GowanusCAG) to be used to push out information available on the CAG website, such as meeting dates and times, links to web posts and CAG news.
- Posting of a link to the EPA’s Gowanus Superfund Facebook page (www.facebook.com/groups/195975002808/) on the CAG’s home page.
- Posting of a link to the CAG’s YouTube page (www.youtube.com/user/GowanusCanalCAG) on the CAG’s home page.
Eric reported that he had issued invitations to the Google Group to CAG members, activated the Twitter feed, and had posted the links to the Facebook and YouTube pages.
