Quicklink: Community Meeting Notes Regarding Greenpoint Landing & 77 Commercial Street

gpterSCYours truly opted not to attend this convocation (one can only stomach so much of this stuff— seriously). However a writer at Greenpointers, Peter, has authored an excellent summary. Do take a moment to give it a read!

  2. I tried to go but it was over capacity. Stood in the hallway for a bit but it was too hard to hear anything.

    For some reason they chose to hold a public comment meeting on one of the largest developments in our community in a meeting room that had a max occupancy of something like 80 people. Hmm, almost like they didn’t want to hear from too many people.

  4. Yup. “They” learned from the 2005 rezone. Personally I think it is kid of funny that Chris Olechowski apparently made noises like he was against this. The reality is he has had a hand in the over-development here in the first place. It’s also interesting to note that the attorney who represented The Park Tower group back in 2005 is, in fact, a board member of OSA now. Makes one wonder, doesn’t it?

    A buddy is going to kick me over audio of the whole thing. Will post if/when I get it.

Tell me what you're thinking...
