City officials are proposing to build a new animal shelter at a former auto wrecking and salvage site at 151 Woodward Avenue in Ridgewood.

On Wednesday, September 4, at 7:30 p.m. at the Knockdown Center in Maspeth, Community Board 5 will host a public meeting about the site’s selection and the mandated toxic clean-up.

CB5’s Zoning and Land Use Review Committee will speak with the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, as well as staff from the Animal Care and Control Center.

The plan would establish an animal shelter for about 170 dogs and cats at the site.

According to CB5, the contaminants at the site are mostly petroleum and metals related to the uses of the site.
