A Call To Protest

A Call To Protest

Who wants it? If it was forced on Breezy Point or Roxbury, the Community Board #14 meeting on September 10, 2002 would be packed with people loudly protesting. If it was to be placed near Neponsit or Belle Harbor, it would be stopped before even it came to CB #14. Rockaway Park doesn’t want it. Broad Channel residents would go wild if it was placed in their area. The Orthodox Jewish Community would march to the Community Board in such large numbers, there would be no space for members of the board. What is this thing nobody in Rockaway wants in their community?

The Sanitation Department wants to place a new open air and enclosed garbage truck garage in Rockaway.

The Sanitation Department wants to solve a smelly, noisy, open air truck garage and cleaning operation on Edgemere Community Park, near an elementary school (P.S. 105), Peninsula Hospital, and the HUD improved Edgemere Houses. Also near the new homes finally being built in the Edgemere Community surrounding Beach Channel Drive.

There must be a loud and clear protest by the people living near or in the surrounding area to stop the garbage truck garage. The civic associations, the parents of children at the churches, the hospital staff and our elected officials should be there at CB #14 meeting Tuesday, September 10, 2002 at American Legion Hall, 301 Beach 92 Street at 7:30 p.m. It is the place where other Rockaway communities would come if the garbage trucks would be placed in their Rockaway community.
