John Coyne at confirmed today that work on the station is likely to be done in August 2016 and the review of internal needs will follow shortly after. We should be able to get an answer about whether a community open space use is possible here by the end of 2016.

From Celeste Leon at Council Member Espinal's office:

I checked in with Andy Inglesby regarding the lot next to the Wilson Avenue L Train station. He’s going to check in with the MTA Real Estate Unit to see if the space is being used internally and then get back to me to talk about potential opportunities for using it as an open, community space.

Community Board 4 notes from Meeting Where MTA Presented Renovation Plans for Station Building Next Door From: Paula Z. Segal, 596 Acres [mailto:paula@596acres.org] Sent: Thursday, October 15, 2015 2:51 PM To: Coyne, John Cc: Leon, Celeste; bk04@cb.nyc.gov Subject: Garden at the Wilson L train station? John, Some Brooklyn CB4 residents are interested in creating a garden next to the Wilson L train station, which has a sweet bit of fenced-in weeds. I think this and station building are actually owned by DOT but MTA recently presented plans for renovations at a CB4 hearing. What would it take to get MTA to include the proper fencing and garden infrastructure here so that the community could garden and compost? I am copying Celeste Leon from Council Member Espinal’s office and Nadine Whitted at Brooklyn Community Board 4 on this message so we can all connect around the potential of this space. In solidarity, Paula Z. Segal, Esq. Executive Director Director of Policy & Advocacy --- From: Coyne, John [mailto:jcoyne@mtahq.org] Sent: Friday, October 16, 2015 2:16 PM Paula: As we discussed this morning, can you find out which NYCT representatives made the presentation to the community board?
