CB #2’S ZONING COMMITTEE REJECTS SULLIVAN ST. REZONING, FINAL VOTE THURSDAY.
A message from Andrew Berman, Executive Director Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation:
After splitting down the middle last month on the proposed Sullivan Street rezoning, last night Community Board 2's Zoning Committee voted overwhelmingly to reject the proposed change. Thanks to everyone who showed up and spoke against the proposed zoning change.
This resolution must now be approved by the full Community Board #2; while the Board usually follows the lead of its committees, the outcome is not guaranteed. If you would like to testify at the full CB 2 meeting in SUPPORT of the Zoning Committee's resolution AGAINST the proposed Sullivan Street rezoning, go to the Cronin Auditorium at St. Vincent's Hospital, 170 W. 12th Street, 10th floor, next Thursday November 19 and sign up to speak. YOU MUST SIGN UP TO SPEAK BETWEEN 6 AND 6:30 PM, and will be called in the order you sign up.
However, the Community Board's position on the proposed zoning change is only advisory (though it is important that we get them on our side). Presuming the applicant continues on with the requested zoning change, it will be heard and voted upon by the Borough President, the City Planning Commisison, and the City Council. When those hearings have been scheduled we will let you know, along with how you can weigh in on the proposal.
