Culture on the Cheap
TONIGHT: Contextual Re-zoning
This evening at the Greenpoint Savings Bank the Department of City Planning Department will present their much-anticipated contextual zoning proposal and answer questions from the public. This plan will cover approximately 175 blocks in Greenpoint and Williamsburg and is intended to prevent new out-of-scale development by establishing height limits. It also purports to “create opportunities for affordable housing through the inclusionary housing program”. (I’ll believe anything pertaining to affordable housing in this neighborhood when I see it, thank you very much.) Check it out!
