From Bayside Patch:
Three state legislators representing northeast Queens have introduced legislation that would require the city to notify community boards of brownfield cleanups in their vicinity.
State Sen. Tony Avella, D-Bayside and state Assemblymen Edward Braunstein, D-Bayside, and Michael Simanowitz, D-Flushing, are calling on the city’s Department of Environmental Conservation to keep all of the city’s community boards in the loop when a new brownfield site cleanup will take place.
The state legislators initiated the bill after Community Board 7 was not notified by the city about the Waterpointe-Whitestone brownfield cleanup site.
The bill recently passed the state Senate’s environmental conservation committee.

Legislators want CB notification of brownfield cleanups

ENFORCEMENT is what's needed, not another photo-op - oops! I mean set of regulations.
many brownfields are covered up via removing documentation. people could be living/working/ going to hospitals/schools and courts in sites that were brownfields that were no cleaned up.
All ashes have dioxin, so Flushing Meadow is loaded. What about that brownfield?
CB7 is already a brown field. It's full of crap!
Those bored board members need a good hosing!
And I want to win the "MegaMillion" lottery.
Isn't that Leonard P. Stavisky School, near Linden Hill, built on untreated toxic ground?
Why does he always look like the clown target at the fair. "Shoot me! Shoot me! No one ever listens to me anyway!"
