POSTPONED DUE TO OVERWHELMING PUBLIC INTEREST! Please stay tuned – the meeting will be rescheduled and held in a larger venue.
On Wednesday, January 18, starting at 7pm in the CB7 office at 250 West 87th Street, Community Board 7 will once again take up the issue of tall towers impacting our Upper West Side neighborhood.
In July 2015, CB7 passed a resolution (35 In Favor 1 Against 1 Abstention) stating:
BE IT RESOLVED THAT Community Board 7/Manhattan supports the application of Community Board 5/Manhattan for a moratorium on the construction of buildings in excess of six-hundred (600) feet in height to the extent that they will be located within one thousand feet (1,000) feet of the perimeter wall that encloses Central Park;
and CB7 requests that the City Planning Commission immediately review the zoning resolution in order to address issues presented by extra-tall buildings on the surrounding community;
and, CB7 requests that the Department of City Planning review includes a study of inclusionary housing, with a view to reducing the rate of additional “bonus” FAR and allocate this to affordable housing.
PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND THE JANUARY 18 MEETING TO LEARN MORE AND SPEAK UP ABOUT THE THREATS THESE TALL TOWERS POSE TO OUR COMMUNITY. Contact LANDMARK WEST! to be added to our email list for future alerts.
