Chouloute, Roland is the representative from Parks and Rec. whom I worked with. He has been very helpful. I can also be contacted at emarucow@hotmail.com if people would like more info. Thanks again for all of your assistance, and I will continue to keep you posted on our progress!

Paula at 596 Acres said

Wonderful news!

We'd love to publicize this and let folks who want to collaborate know how they can connect with you! Are you having any public meetings?

Also, it would be great for us know know who your contact at Parks & Rec is - knowing what is working helps others in your situation get their projects off the ground, too!

HPD and Parks and Rec said we are a go. I met with Dr. Samuels, and we agreed that we did not want to divide the lot, and plan to work together. Parks and Rec want Dr. Samuels to be the point person, however I already have letter of support from the community board that Parks and Rec requested, and BSCAH is waiting on theirs. We are ready to go forward.

Yes! Looks like we are good to go. I am meeting with Dr. Samuels from Bed-Stuy against hunger tomorrow, and we are hoping to share the lot.
