Critical CB 3 Meeting: Rezoning the 3rd & 4th Avenue Corridors
Save Third & Fourth Avenues in the East Village!
Join GVSHP and neighbors at the
Community Board 3 Land Use Committee Meeting
Wednesday, September 13 6:30pm
Meeting begins at 6:30 pm; this is item #4
GVSHP will be presenting its proposal for rezoning the 3rd and 4thAvenue corridors to prevent oversized commercial development in this area, such as the 300 room, 13-story hotel under construction at 112-120 East 11th Street, at this upcoming Community Board 3 Land Use Committee meeting. GVSHP is proposing and seeking zoning protections for the area between 5th and 3rd Avenues, Union Square and Astor Place,which is unique within the Village and East Village for its lack of adequate zoning and landmark protections. Community Board 3 ONLYcovers the area east of 4th Avenue, so Wednesday’s meeting is solely focused on 3rd and 4th Avenues.
(Community Board 2 covers west of 4th Avenue, and is already STRONGLY on record in support of our proposed zoning protections for Broadway and University Place.)
If you oppose overdevelopment in this area, it is vital that you attend. This is not a public hearing, but residents of Community Board 3 may speak in support of zoning protections for Third and Fourth Avenues. Thank you, and see you there!
