A public meeting to address overcrowding at public elementary schools in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens (District 15) will take place on at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 21 at P.S. 58, 250 Carroll St. (between Carroll and 1st Place).

The overcrowded schools include P.S. 29, P.S. 32 and P.S. 58.

P.S. 29’sprincipal Dr. Fagin told parents last year that it was unlikely that the school would be able to accommodate all children living in the zone.

Community Education Council 15, state Sen. Daniel Squadron, state Assemblymember Jo Anne Simon, state Senator Velmanette Montgomery, City Councilmember Brad Lander, City Councilmember Steve Levin and 52nd Assemblymember Jo Ann Simon are slated to attend, along with Community Board 6.

On Thursday, Oct. 22 at 3 p.m., concerned Sunset Park residents will rally in front of 517 39th St. to push for a new school at the site, rather than a hotel.
