ERFA’s application to the City of New York for a zoning change to prevent the construction of supertall residential towers in the East River Fifties area was officially certified by the City Planning Commission on June 5th. The certification kicks off a months-long process of reviews and approvals.
First up: ERFA’s proposal goes to Community Board 6 and Borough President Brewer for review and approval.
Your attendance and participation at these public meetings is needed to show community solidarity and support for rezoning to ensure the prevention of the out-of-scale development we are now facing. There are 3 meetings with CB6 coming up. If you can’t make the first one, please consider attending a subsequent one.
First Meeting: Public Hearing before Community Board Six (Full Board)
Date: June 14, 2017
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: NYU Langone Medical Center, 550 First Avenue (near 30th Street) — Alumni Hall B
ERFA will present its rezoning application, then public testimony will be taken. Any member of the public who wishes to offer testimony may do so. If you would like to speak, come with a short statement (no longer than 3 minutes) in support and sign up to speak when you arrive. Even if you would rather not speak, your presence is important.
