Double Rejection: Community Boards 2 and 3 Both Say A Resounding "No" To Hotel; Special Permit Plan

 

 

 


Village Preservation and our supporters at last week's Community Board #3 hearing

 

Last night Community Board #3 (East Village, Lower East Side) joined Community Board #2 (Greenwich Village/SoHo/NoHo) in overwhelmingly and resoundingly rejecting the “Hotel Special Permit” plan put forth by Mayor de Blasio as part of his Tech Hub deal with Councilmember Carlina Rivera.  Both boards cited its total lack of efficacy in dealing with the overdevelopment issues that the affected areas of Greenwich Village and the East Village south of Union Square face.  Both also cited the multiple mistakes, oversights, and inaccuracies in the city’s Environmental Assessment for the proposal and the lack of recognition of nearly two hundred historically significant buildings in the area as exposed by Village Preservation.  The boards also called for the real landmark and zoning protections for the area that Village Preservation has proposed and been fighting for, and that Councilmember Carlina Rivera promised to condition her support for the Tech Hub upon – a promise she failed to keep.

 

 

Some of the historic buildings, people, and events located in Greenwich Village and the East Village south of Union Square which the City has refused to recognize as part of its hotel special permit proposal and analysis.

To Help:
Tell Mayor de Blasio, Councilmember Rivera, Borough President Gale Brewer, and other city officials that the hotel special permit plan does NOTHING to protect this neighborhood, and demand REAL zoning and landmark protections for Greenwich Village and the East Village
