New Community Coalition Forms in Response to NYU Expansion Plans
Following the suspension of the Community Task Force on NYU Development by Borough President Stringer, GVSHP and a dozen other community groups have formed a new coalition to respond to NYU’s 20-year expansion plan, ‘NYU 2031.’ The Community Action Alliance on NYU 2031 (CAAN) is composed of neighborhood, preservation, parents, and building groups which are concerned about the detrimental impact NYU’s massive growth plans would have on our neighborhood. If your block, neighborhood, or civic association would like to join us, please respond to this e-mail.
CAAN is working to ensure that elected officials and the Community Board support the recommendations of the Community Task Force on NYU Development, which met for over four years with NYU — read our letter to elected officials and the Task Force HERE. The Community Board and local elected officials have not yet taken a position on the NYU 2031 plan, but will ultimately take the votes which determine whether or not the NYU plan is approved and enacted.
