STOP DESTRUCTION of HISTORIC DOMINO SUGAR REFINERY & REVIEW THE ALTERNATE PLAN

2,380
Supporters

We ask Amanda Burden of New York City Department of City Planning to consider our alternate plan to be presented on October 1st 2013 of the Domino Sugar Refinery.

SAVE DOMINO is about preserving the future of America and to protect historical structures that identify who we are.  This starts by looking at the adverse effects of overdevelopment in cities today.  Our main focus is to uphold the heritage and architecture of the entire Domino Sugar Refinery and the outlining communities of Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick.

Be a part of history as we aim to redesign one of the most iconic American industrial structures online with your support.  Let's reuse and readapt to bring art, culture, science, and green collar jobs to create means for a more verdant future, not more condo's and cookie cutter retail.

Domino affects you, more than you know.  Did you know the Domino Sugar Refinery is an eleven acre site in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn?  Did you also know it’s slated for demolition in August 2013 and will be a 15-year construction project?

A better plan exists and it starts with you, because we all want the same,

End economic segregation and the "RICH DOOR, POOR DOOR" practice

Have more infrastructure over anymore development

To eliminate air & noise pollution affecting our health

To demand safe asbestos removal of our buildings in our community

To demand sustainable green guidelines in new construction

Prevent culture deprivation and mono culture destroying diversity

Instill a level of affordability for the community

To seek truth in real estate planning

To have more green space and protect our natural environment
