Community groups CAAAV Organizing Asian Communities and the O.U.R Waterfront Coalition are sponsoring three visioning sessions in March and April focused on the future of the East River Waterfront.  From their email:

“CAAAV and the O.U.R. Waterfront Coalition have been working since 2007 to ensure that the LES and Chinatown’s waterfront is developed for community residents, with services, programs, and businesses that WE want, instead of being developed by the City for wealthy residents and tourists.

Now, we want to hear your ideas for our waterfront so that we can turn your ideas into reality! Come to our free and public visioning sessions to share your thoughts, hopes, and dreams for our waterfront!”

The visioning dates are as follows:

Sunday, March 22, 1 to 3 p.m. @ 139 Henry Street (in Chinese and English)

Tuesday, April 7, 6 to 8 p.m. @ 80 Rutgers Slip (in English and Spanish)

Wednesday, April 22, 6 to 8 p.m. @ 184 Eldridge Street (in English and Chinese)
