Whole Foods Gowanus Petition

To Mr. John Mackey, Chairman & CEO of Whole Foods Market, Inc.:

We the undersigned citizens of Brooklyn ask that you modify your building plan for your planned Park Slope/Gowanus store in the following ways:

  • Eliminate at least one-third of the parking. Oversupply of parking encourages driving at the expense of better transit options, and promotes road congestion. 420 spaces are at least 100 more than what are needed to fully serve customer demand.
  • Replace rooftop parking with a green roof, solar panels, or both. A green roof will reduce run-off, lower energy costs and promote a healthy environment. Solar panels will supply a significant portion of the store's energy needs and reduce harmful emissions.
  • Implement a comprehensive transportation-management plan, including jitney service, bus stops, bike parking, Pedicabs and fee-based parking.
