30 Jun Important City Council Hearing on Coney Rezoning! Help Us Tell City Council to FIX the Plan or KILL the Plan!
Public Hearing at City Council
The Land-use subcommittee of the City Council will be holding a public hearing this week.
Wednesday, July 1, 10:00 AM
Council Chambers – City Hall (between Broadway and Park Row)
It is very important that we attend. The City Council is scheduled to vote by the end of July and this could be our last chance to testify before City Council and tell councilmembers to either fix or kill the City’s plan. The area devoted to open-air amusements must, at a minimum, extend from the Boardwalk to the Bowery and the high-rises must be removed from the south side of Surf Avenue. If the best the City can currently muster is a plan that would permanently destroy Coney Island’s potential as an amusement destination, then everyone would be better off if they scrapped it altogether.
YOU MUST GET THERE EARLY TO GET THROUGH SECURITY, FIND A PLACE IN THE HEARING ROOM, AND SIGN UP TO SPEAK! Once inside, look for one of our volunteers wearing “Save Coney Island” stickers. To offer testimony, you must sign up at the beginning of the hearing. You will typically be given no more than three minutes to express your view. We hope to see you all there. This could be our last public hearing; so let’s make our participation count.
