CB6 Meeting on Parole MegaSite

By Lisa M. Collins

Locals curious to learn more about the new parole megacenter the state of New York is building on 2nd Avenue and 7th St. in the Gowanus area can attend a Community Board 6 hearing about the matter on Thursday at 6:30 p.m., at P.S. 58 Elementary School. The center is expected to open early in 2015 and will service 300 to 400 released convicts a day as they check in with their parole officers. 

Several Brooklyn committee officials will be in attendance, from transportation and public safety, economic/waterfront/community development and housing, and youth human services and education.

Officials will review and discuss information related to the N.Y. Department of Corrections and Community Supervision’s planned new parole center at 15 2nd Ave., between 6th St and the Gowanus Canal.

P.S. 58 is located at 330 Smith St. Enter at Carroll St. Meeting will take place in the auditorium. Make sure to check in with the security officer and let him know where you are going.

There is also a rally against the proposed center planned for Wednesday, Nov. 19, at 3:30, at 2nd Ave. and 7th Street, by the group Gowanus United, which has filed a lawsuit to prevent the opening of the center.
