CB1 Votes Tonight on Greenpoint Landing & 77 Commercial Street

by GWAPP on

At tonight’s Brooklyn’s Community Board 1 (CB1) meeting, the executive committee will issue a final vote on the proposed ULURP actions of Greenpoint Landing and 77 Commercial Street. This vote represents the culmination of months of community meetings about these two new developments going up along the Greenpoint waterfront that, in the words of CB1 Chair Chris Olechowski, “will radically change the nature of our community.” The meeting will take place tonight at 6:30pm at the Swinging Sixties Senior Center (211 Ainslie Street, Brooklyn, New York 11211). If you want to speak at the public session, you must sign-up before 6:15pm.
