Another delay:

The NYC Department of Parks and Recreation (NYC Parks) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hosted a meeting in May providing an update on the lead remediation and improvement project at the Red Hook ball fields and announcing that the first phase of the four-phase project would be delayed by approximately ten months.

It was announced Wednesday that the proposal for the Red Hook ball fields 5-8 (adjacent to the Red Hook Recreation Center) would not be addressed during the meeting but would be presented sometime in October. NYC Parks and the EPA oversee these fields, where soil was found to have elevated lead levels. The remediation of these ballfields is scheduled to be completed by spring 2020.

From the draft plan:

To facilitate the community involvement program, the EPA has designated a Community Involvement Coordinator (CIC) to act as a primary
liaison between the community and the agency. The CIC will ensure prompt, accurate and consistent responses and information dissemination about the site; handle site inquiries; and serve as the point of contact for community members. The CIC assigned to the Columbia Smelting and Refining Works site
is:
