FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
City of Kingston Announces Design Review Meeting of the Kingston Greenline’s Hasbrouck-Delaware Parklet to be held on Tuesday, September 26th
KINGSTON, NY Mayor Steve Noble is pleased to invite the public to a design review meeting of the Hasbrouck-Delaware Parklet on Tuesday, September 26th, 2017 from 5:00pm to 7:30pm at the parking lot located at 2 Livingston Street, near the project location. In the event of rain, the meeting will be moved to the Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church at 30 Livingston Street.
The Hasbrouck-Delaware Parklet is a project funded by the Hudson River Valley Greenway and the HUD Community Development Block Program. The parklet project includes restoration of sidewalks at the intersection of Hasbrouck and Delaware Avenues and the re-envisioning of a small greenspace located on the western end of the Delaware tunnel. The greenspace will feature a stairway down to the future Kingston Point Rail Trail and beautiful landscaping with sculptures.
The purpose of the September 26th meeting is to collect feedback from the public on the project design, which was developed by the City of Kingston’s Engineering Office, in partnership with the Kingston Land Trust’s Kingston Greenline Design Sub-Committee. Renderings of the design will be available at the event and then on the City’s Hasbrouck-Delaware Parklet Project webpage: https://www.kingston-ny.gov/hdparklet. Following the meeting, there will be a 15-day comment period in which members of the public can submit comments about the design to Kristen Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The meeting will begin at 5:00 pm with the Kingston Land Trust and Kingston YMCA Farm Project’s “Comida y Tierra” community conversation series in Spanish about food and land. This month’s topic will be the Hasbrouck-Delaware Parklet and will take place outside over a taco truck meal, with food available for purchase.
At 6 pm, Mayor Noble will welcome participants to the public Design Review meeting with consecutive interpretation into Spanish provided by Kingston Land Trust volunteers. Following a brief overview of the project, the renderings of the design will be viewed and participants will have the opportunity to provide comments or ask questions, with interpretation available.
