NYU Plan Details Revealed, Hearing May 5
NYU recently revealed its draft Environmental Assessment Statement (read HERE) and draft Scoping Document (read HERE) for its massive proposed zoning changes and taking of public land to allow its planned twenty-year expansion in Greenwich Village. These documents provide greater detail about what NYU is planning, what the potential impacts are of their proposed changes, and how NYU will be required to analyze those impacts for the public review process of their application.
Community Board #2 will be holding a public hearing on the documents and the response to them on Thursday, May 5 (time and location TBD). Following the Community Board hearing, the City Planning Commission will hold a hearing before the documents are finalized and the review and analysis takes place. This process is expected to take several months. After that, the public hearing, review, and approval process for the actual proposed zoning changes and transfers of public land may take place.
GVSHP will provide more information about the hearings and how you can provide feedback as it becomes available. For more information on NYU’s plans and GVSHP’s responses, click HERE.
