The City Planning Commission is the agency responsible for “the conduct of planning relating to the orderly growth and development of the City, including adequate and appropriate resources for the housing, business, industry, transportation, distribution, recreation, culture, comfort, convenience, health and welfare of its population.” The Rudin/North Shore LIJ plan lacks a Certificate of Appropriateness, lacks relevant lawful permission to proceed does not include adequate resources for the health and welfare of New York City’s population.
This meeting is an essential part of the ULURP, or Uniform Land Use Review Process, to rezone the site of our hospital for condo development. The Planning Commissioners have not yet heard the depth of our community’s opposition to the Rudin/North Shore LIJ plan. It is vital that they begin this process with our voice.
