The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Please Vote In Lead-Up to Tonight's ULURP Committee Meeting

I think Babs had a good point about there being too many petitions flying around these days. However, since the neighborhood group Concerned Citizens has created one of their own, I propose that readers sign either theirs or mine before the ULURP Committee Meeting where we will discuss the draft to City Planning of a letter designed to finally begin a study, after a year of debate and information gathering.

Kind of an informal poll, if you will:


If you'd like a study to proceed sign this one:
https://www.change.org/p/community-board-9-brooklyn-nyc-begin-a-planning-study-of-cb9-brooklyn-nyc

If you'd prefer that we vote "no" to proceeding, so that the community find a way to conduct its own study prior to any City involvement:
https://www.change.org/p/community-board-9-say-no-to-city-planning-say-yes-to-community-led-rezoning

I'll be sure to bring the tally to tonight's meeting as at least some evidence of community support for or against the revised draft below, which may include some slight revisions by the end of the meeting, depending on committee members input:

Have you posted your petition before? I might have signed this before...

Clarkson FlatBed said...

yes. Change.org will prevent you from signing again.

Developers are playing excavator "music" in the background, as this vote takes place:

Can we vote in favor of more development? I'd like to see development concentrated where it makes sense on Empire rather than in the middle of residential blocks all over the place. Build tall on Empire!

forgive my ignorance but can any resident attend the ulurp meeting tonight?

Daniel Kristjansson said...

Robert Roberst, anyone can attend.

Only committee members and, if prior committee meetings are a guide, any non-committee member who is a CB9 board member can also vote.
