Heather found these fliers posted on a telephone pole on Dupont Street. The flyer is right – these zoning changes should have happened three to four years ago. But since there are still a lot of horses in the barn, better than never closing the barn door now.
City Planning will indeed be holding a public hearing on June 3rd to discuss the Greenpoint/Williamsburg contextual zoning. That follows a public hearing this month at the Brooklyn Borough President’s Office (he approved it), three public hearings last month at Community Board 1 (they approved it), and two public information sessions last November (to which all property owners received a written invitation). The process as a whole is approaching its third anniversary this Summer, and has been the subject of at least half a dozen other public hearings in the community. So yeah, property owners have been provided a pretty “limited time to protest these changes”.
