NPHA’s March Meeting

Join us Monday, March 15th at 7:30 to meet the new Commanding Officer of the 78th Precinct, Captain Frantz
Souffrant and Mayoral Candidate Kathryn Garcia.





Captain Souffrant will be present to get feedback from the community about the 78th Precinct which is located on Sixth Avenue between Bergen and Dean Streets, as well as operations of the NYPD generally. 
The precinct defines a self-enforcement zone of approximately seven blocks in the vicinity of the precinct building. These blocks have limited traffic and parking regulation enforcement. This affects the passage of pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles through our area as well as street sanitation. The area was also affected by street closures and barricades during the protests last summer.

Would you like to share your ideas, questions or concerns in advance? Submit them HERE



 

Kathryn Garcia was Commissioner of the NYC Department of Sanitation from 2014 to 2020. She was also the chief operating officer of the NYC Department of Environmental Protection and in 2019 served as the chief executive officer of the New York City Housing Authority as part of an emergency effort to address lead paint problems. She is currently a candidate in the 2021 Mayoral Election.

Your North Flatbush Avenue Neighbors Need You Now! 
No doubt many of you heard about the recent travesty that impacted our neighbors at 71-73 Saint Marks Avenue/ 267 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn New York. A fire tore through the upper floors of the building displacing residents of nine apartments and causing intense damage to the building and ground floor business, Morgan’s Brooklyn BBQ. We are assured to know that there were no injuries or fatalities. But there are people that are hurting and could use our support.

The Executive Committee of the North Flatbush Avenue BID Board of Directors has recently approved the creation of an Emergency Support Fund and to be stewards of this fundraising opportunity. The intention of this fund is to aid:completely or partially furloughed employees of Morgan’s Brooklyn BBQany of the nine 71//73 Saint Marks Avenue Flatbush Avenue households that identify as in need of assistance.Click HERE to make a contribution!
