Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer is holding a community meeting on Monday, Oct. 3, where the public is invited to put forward their input into the redesign of Noonan Park’s Playground in Sunnyside.
Van Bramer secured $600,000 earlier this year for the redesign of the playground. In an effort to increase transparency and gather ideas as to how best modify it, Van Bramer will be the first elected official to ask the community for their vision for the design of a public space.
Starting October 3rd and running through October 31st, there will be suggestion boxes placed in the Sunnyside Library and Van Bramer’s District Office (47-01 Queens Blvd., Suite 205) where the community can fill out suggestion forms and voice their ideas for the new Noonan Playground. Van Bramer’s office will also be receiving suggestions by phone and email.
At the kick-off event, the students of PS 199 kids will be there to share their suggestions by drawing and writing their ideas for the perfect playground.
