City exterminates proposal to build pesticide facility in Canarsie

Following vocal opposition from community members, the city has nixed its plans to build a pesticide storage facility on Ralph Avenue in Canarsie.

The rezoning application to build the facility at 1427 Ralph Ave. — which would house offices, labs, and storage space for pesticides — was approved by Community Board 18 in March, but faced opposition by area pols, including Borough President Eric Adams and Councilmember Farah Louis.
