The plan would establish an animal shelter for approximately 170 dogs and cats at the location. The contaminants at this site are primarily petroleum and metals related caused by the use of the site since 1962 for auto wrecking and auto salvage.
The meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 4, at 7:30 p.m. at the Knockdown Center, which is located at 52-19 Flushing Avenue in Maspeth.
Representatives of Animal Care and Control and its environmental consultant, AKRF, Inc., will share details of the clean-up and the future animal shelter. For more information, please call Community Board 5 at (718) 366-1834.
