Dutch Kills Civic Association

The Dutch Kills community is in the midst of major redevelopment. Zoning changes by the Department of City Planning are being studied and are sure to make a quality of life impact on Dutch Kills.

The Department of City Planning will be addressing the Dutch Kills Civic Association (DKCA), seeking their input for the proposed changes.

City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer has assigned two discretionary grants; one for $4,800 to support youth development and community commitment in the Dutch Kills area of Long Island City through the promotion of events and community organizing efforts. The other is for $10,000 for the Windmill Community Garden. This will enable them to erect a wrought iron fence to replace the cyclone fence, which makes the garden appear like a vacant lot,” said DKCA President George Stamatiades.

Dutch Kills Civic Association is preparing a petition to be presented to the Department of Transportation, asking them to address transportation issues in Dutch Kills.

Next month’s meeting is on March 9th at the Growing Up Green Charter School, on 39-31 28th Street, Long Island City, at 7:30 pm. They encourage everyone to bring a neighbor to the meetings. “It is important for everyone to know what changes are in store and their impact on all of us,” stated Stamatiades.
