Final Reminder: Come to the NYU Court Date tomorrow at 10:30 am!
One year ago today, the City Council’s Land Use Committee voted to approve a deal brokered by City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and City Council Member Margaret Chin to allow NYU’s massive 20-year expansion plan.
Following on the heels of approvals by Borough President Stringer and the City Planning Commission, this was the final public approval allowing NYU to proceed with a two million square foot expansion that will destroy public greenspace, overturn neighborhood zoning protections and open space preservation requirements, and abrogate long-standing agreements under which NYU was granted public land decades ago. It will also result in the tremendously damaging overdevelopment of our neighborhood.
That is unless we can convince a judge to overturn these wrongheaded, inappropriately-granted approvals. GVSHP, NYU faculty, and a broad range of neighborhood and preservation groups and individuals are suing to overturn these approvals, and tomorrow’s hearing will be a key milestone in that process. WE NEED YOU THERE TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!
HOW TO HELP:
This may be your last chance to show your support before the judge – DON’T MISS IT!
We hope to see you tomorrow.
