All of Gowanus

My project idea is...

Creation of a comprehensive plan for development on the Gowanus Canal, including an environmental impact statement regarding the effects of development.

So that people could... 

Development of the Gowanus Canal area is currently taking place piecemeal without any thought to the overall effect on the environment and the community. A comprehensive plan is needed to take into account the needs of the community and the environment in the short term and into the next century. Following Superfund remediation, the Gowanus will become one of the most sought-after areas of New York City, and residents should have the strongest voice in determining the shape and scope of development.

I created the sculptures that grace PS 107. I would like to create more Public Art with community schools. My art services would be donated. Funding would be for classroom time and cost of materials.
