Brooklyn Greenway Needs Your Clicks

The Brooklyn Greenway Initiative is in the running for a grant from Green Mountain Coffee and needs your online support. To help out, click over to JustMeans to cast your vote and leave a comment in favor of the project. Says the Greenway team:

The funds will help sustain our work
over the next five years when the design of the greenway will be
completed and the first segments will go into construction. In the
current financial environment coming up with the required match for our
funding from the NYS Environmental Protection Fund is proving
challenging. You can help by voting for the greenway as an
innovative climate change solution.

Free registration with JustMeans is required. Watch the video above for a BGI primer.
