Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Saturday, September 29, 2012
Berkeley Carroll School Community, Local officials, and Friends on the Occasion
of The Berkeley Carroll School Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the New School
2009, we were apprised of a plan by The Berkeley Carroll School to expand their
facilities along our property lines (and those of the other properties that
abut the site in the rear yards on St. John’s Place). At a public meeting
held at The Berkeley Carroll School, we voiced our strong opposition
to The Berkeley Carroll School’s expansion plans as originally configured.
assistance of our elected officials we met with The Berkeley Carroll
School and explained our concerns. As a result of negotiations, we
structured a series of modifications and agreements that were viewed by
all of us involved as a reasonable compromise between the School and its
neighbors, and equally significantly a blueprint for future interactions
between the neighbors and The Berkeley Carroll School.
we have all worked closely, again with the assistance of our elected officials,
through the construction process to assure a smooth and neighborly transition
to that which we have before us today, an expansion of The Berkeley
Carroll School that is not only a beautiful new addition to the
School, but to our Park Slope community as well. And in the process we have
hopefully cemented a renewed spirit of cooperation and mutual respect
between The Berkeley Carroll School, and us, the neighbors on St.
this occasion to not only congratulate and thank The Berkeley Carroll
School community but also all our elected officials for a job well done. With
